Pictures: Host rock and contact relations

Host rock relations at the Skaergaard western margin on Mellemø. Gently folded Kangerlussuaq sediments (Cretaceous to Palaeocene) overlain by Palaeocene to Eocene basalts. The steep hill at the left represents the outer lithologies of the Skaergaard Marginal Border Series. The pile of rocks on the outcrop is an ancient Eskimo meat depot. Photo by Jens C. Andersen.
