The North Atlantic Craton and surrounding belts:
a craton-specific approach to exploration targeting

Following on from the successful first North Atlantic Craton meeting in St Andrews in March 2014, the organising committee invites you to attend the second meeting in Edinburgh in 2016.

The North Atlantic Craton (NAC) stretches from Canada through Greenland, Scotland and into Norway. This meeting welcomes contributions that develop our understanding of the NAC and its surrounding mobile belts, and their mineral resource potential.


Conference programme now available

Science themes:

  • formation and cratonisation of the NAC: from micro-continents to craton
  • Proterozoic orogens: the mobile belts surrounding the NAC
  • the NAC margin in Canada and its mineralisation
  • metallogenesis and links to geodynamic setting
  • mineral resources of the NAC and adjacent Palaeoproterozoic mobile belts
