The Department of Geology in the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Labour provides geoscientific advice to the Government of Greenland on issues relating to exploration and exploitation licences, licence applications, guidelines, mineral and petroleum policy and strategy. The Department of Geology carries out high quality geoscientific studies to increase understanding of the geology, mineral and petroleum resources of Greenland. These studies are important, particularly in underexplored areas, to generate new exploration interest and expenditure. The Department also runs and attends international marketing events to promote investment in exploration in Greenland.
