The Sveconorwegian (Grenvillian) Tørdal pegmatite field, located in the county of Telemark in southern Norway, is known for its enrichment in scandium (Sc) as well as other rare metals (e.g., Raade & Kristiansen 2000, 2003). During the last decade, the interest for Sc has increased, due to demands of the automotive, air- and spacecraft industries. The Sc demand has motivated this study which aims to better understand the origin and the processes which have led to Sc enrichment in the Tørdal pegmatites. Garnet, which is a common accessory mineral in the Tørdal pegmatites, preferentially incorporates Sc...
