These results indicate that the timing and spatial relationships of the magmatic activity at ca 1630-1600 Ma in the crystalline basement of NW Lithuania correlate well with magmatic events in the Baltic States and the Baltic Shield in Sweden, suggesting a number of episodic pulses of magmatism and a prolonged temporal evolution of the Riga batholith.
A sampling of topics includes: Palaeoproterozoic supercontinents and global evolution, the Columbia connection in North China, and timing and duration of Palaeoproterozoic events producing ore-bearing layered in intrusions of the Baltic Shield.

Their correlation with coeval deformation zones of the Baltic Shield in Sweden, also in Belarus, Latvia and Poland, can help to reveal the regional structure of the East European Craton around the Baltic Sea.
Structure, stratigraphy and ore-forming processes in Bergslagen: implications for the development of the Svecofennian of the Baltic Shield.
The regional granulite metamorphism, coupled with high rock density and magnetization, conceals the geological and potential field patterns characteristic of the proper Svecofennian in the Baltic Shield and North Estonia.
NAN is involved in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral deposits within the geological area known as the Baltic Shield, which encompasses most of Sweden, Norway, Finland and part of northwestern Russia.
In this study we compared the relationship between heavy mineral assemblages typical of the Baltic Shield (apatite, amphiboles, pyroxenes, zircon, garnet, epidote, tourmaline, staurolite, sphene, corundum, sillimanite, monazite, magnetite, and ilmenite) and the local bedrock (hematite, leucoxene, pyrite, micas, limonite, phosphates, carbonates, anatase, barite, and chlorite) (Jouzapavicius 1976; Viiding 1976).
As reported in January, 1997 South Atlantic has joined with Boliden to form a jointly-owned exploration company (NAN) focusing on gold within the Baltic Shield area (Sweden, Norway, Finland and northwestern Russia).
The Company has also acquired a data base and the necessary key personnel to assist with the exploration operations to be carried out by the Company in the Baltic Shield, an area comprising Sweden, Norway, Finland and northwestern Russia.
