Publisher: Copenhagen: RHODOS Internationalt Forlag

In: Grønlands fysiske natur. (1995.),
Abstract: For its area Greenland has so far yielded few meteorites, iron at Cape York and stone at Ella Island. Iron pieces have been used for centuries by Inuit, worked cold into knives or weapon tips with tough basalt "hammers", fetched to site. Peary was first to notice Greenlanders' use of natural iron and postponed journey to Pole while he brought two large lumps out. 3 ton Savik 1 (=iron or knife), found in 1913, was sledged out in 1925. Author's team found Agpalilik, 20 tons, virgin iron, and extracted it in 1965. Another lump, 250 kg, was found in 1984. Its ages and minerals are described.
