Reconnaissance structural geological mapping and field XRF-analyses with a portable XRF-analyzer were carried out at the now closed Ulveryggen copper mine, Repparfjord Window, Finnmark. The goals of the study were to better understand the structural setting of the mineralisations at Ulveryggen and to test a handheld XRF-analyzer on this type of copper deposit. Preliminary conclusions suggest a structural control of at least part of the mineralisations. Suggestions for further studies include a helicopter-borne geophysical survey, meso-scale structural geological mapping and detailed studies of mineralisations and micro-structures.
