A diamond hunt has been organized in Greenland

The existence of diamonds is already well known in western Greenland, but the stones may have been displaced as a result of geological movements. So far, the diamond company, De Beers, is embarking on a gigantic hunt.

The diamond dealer in London obtained a land survey permit in western Greenland in July 2019, followed by a sea extension in October 2020. After the excavation was stopped, Diamond race Has now reopened.

According to the Danish and Greenland Geological Survey (GEUS), hunting has begun to identify potential underwater deposits. To do this, a ship that specializes in underwater research, La Sanna, has been sailing on the water since the end of September.

These acoustic sonar studies took place about 800 kilometers off the west coast of the largest Arctic island. “There is He did a study for de pierce in September, ”a Geological Institute spokesman confirmed to AFP. The work took place in the north, the capital of the Danish Autonomous Region.

The results of the study were not immediately known

Like other places in the Arctic, the natural and mineral resources of the world’s largest island are very greedy, even though some projects have seen daylight. Currently, two mines are being produced in the Danish Autonomous Region: one is anorthosite, with deposits titanium, and the other ruby ​​and pink sapphire.

While this is not hostile to all mining activities, the newly elected local government in April opposed the uranium mining project in the south of the country. In July, he banned all oil expectations due to his commitment to climate and the environment. Greenland, which has begun to shrink as a result of three times faster warming in the Arctic than the rest of the world, is seeking to diversify its income beyond fishing and subsidies from Denmark.
