With knowledge of geology in place, along with more efficient methods for extracting resources and improved recycling of metals and minerals, a more environmentally-friendly mineral value-chain can also be developed in Norway.
The collection and free dissemination of knowledge is valuable to society. Open-access data and geological maps are assets that can be used over and over again.
The Geological Survey of Norway (NGU) carries proud historical traditions into the future. Our knowledge ensures wise and comprehensive decisions for the best of society. We put geology on the agenda. We will continue doing this.
