Quigussaq (Umanak)


Occurrence number: 
Longitude: -53, Latitude: 71.03

A group of "completely unaltered minor lamprophyre-carbonatite intrusions" in the Umanak area are referred to by Larsen and Moller (1968a, p. 686 and 1968b, p. 83). No other details are given.

K-Ar on biotite gave 600±15 Ma (Larsen and Moller, 1968b).
