Summary:A new Tertiary alkaline intrusive complex at 66 degrees 30'N in East Greenland has a diameter of approx 5 km and consists of dense dyke swarms and a plutonic core in which tinguaites and ijolites appear to predominate. It represents the most southerly in the line of Tertiary intrusive centres which stretch over 1000 km to the north. [W.S.W.]
