University of the Basque Country, Spain

The University of the Basque Country has a long experience in the research of ore deposits with a focus on rare-element mineralizations related to magmatic environments, mainly pegmatites.

Our role in GREENPEG comprises lithochemical wall rock mapping and the study of trace elements in quartz associated with pegmatites, which is framed in the prospect scale methodology testing. This will help understand the interaction between pegmatites and their hosting rocks and with this, optimize the exploration of pegmatites at a reduced scale.
