Rare Earths - Uranium, Gold | Greenland

Highlights in the 21th century

Exploration in polar regions is one of the current priorities of world science.

The Czech Republic has been cooperating with the Danish Geological Service in one of the pilot mappings of Greenland.

The Czech polar station of J. G. Mendel was built in spring 2005 on the island of James Ross in the Antarctic, which runs geological mapping and the changes in ice, movement of icebergs, reconstruction of the process of paleoclimate, etc.

Czech geological Survey (CGS)

Deposit exploration resulting in finding new deposits of precious stones in Siberia. The company ”Moravské naftové doly, a.s.” located deposits of mineral oil and gained exploration licences in Ural, Russia.

Czech-Chinese cooperation resulted in exploring unique medium sized deposits Mo and REE in Huanglongp carbonatite, and a newly opened deposit REE Miaoya, China. Geological research of the world’s largest REE deposit Bayan Obo, China. Exploration of new deposits of platinum and gold in Mongolia , as a continuation of the long and successful history of Czech geology.

NAMAK project in 2006, project in 2006, Czech geologists found the world’s largest salt cave on the – 3N. Exploration in the unique salt caves and salt karst in Iran within NAMAK resulted in locating tens of other salt caves up to 2009. The current activity leads to locating oil in salt pockets, analysis of thermal springs, etc.

Czech geologists developed a system of tracking clear meteorites and gained the top position in this field worldwide. In 2007, this technology enabled the recording of the track and origin of the unique Australian meteorite Bunburra Rockhole. Three out of five so called “meteorites with a family tree” were classified by Czech astronomers.
