North Qôroq Centre, Igaliku (Igaliko), Narsaq, Kujalleq, Greenland

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
The North Qôroq syenite centre forms part of the Igaliko Nepheline Syenite Complex in the Gardar Province of South Greenland. Extensive metasomatism, associated with the evolution of syenitic magmas, has resulted in redistribution of the rare-earth elements (REE), originally concentrated by magmatic processes, in both the syenites and surrounding granite-gneiss and quartzite country-rocks.
