Mineral deposits and metallogeny of Fennoscandia
This book is the first ever compilation of mineral deposits and metallogenic areas in Fennoscandia. It describes the major metal deposits and all the 168 metallogenic domains defined in Norway, Sweden, Finland and NW Russia. Deposits and metallogenic areas include the follow- ing metals: Ag, Au, Be, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Li, Mn, Mo, Nb, Ni, Pb, Pd, Pt, Rh, REE, Sc, Sn, Ta, Ti, U, V, W, Y, Zn, and Zr.
This is an invaluable handbook for anyone interested in Fennoscandian mineral resources. It can be used in selecting strategic areas for mineral exploration and for research in economic geology. It also is an instrument for regional land-use planning and political decision-making. Thereby, it acts as a tool for fulfilling the requirements set by the Raw Materials Initiative of the European Union, and for similar objectives set by national governments.
The book is a joint product of the geological surveys of Finland, Norway, Russia and Sweden, and the State Company Mineral (Russia).
