Summary:The transitional layered kakortokite and the overlying aegirine lujavrite I together contain ZrO2 25 X 106 metric tons, RE2O3 9 X 106 t, Nb2O5 2 X 106 t. Combined with tonnages from the lower layered kakortokites, the estimated resources at the head of Kangerdluarssuk fjord are ZrO2 86 X 106 t, RE2O3 23.3 X 106 t, and Nb2O5 8.5 X 106 t. [W.S.W.]
