Grumant was a Soviet Russian settlement in Svalbard, Norway, established in 1912 and abandoned in 1965. The population peaked at 1106 in 1951/52 (including Coles Bay, which served as port for Grumant). The name ‘Grumant’ is Pomor in origin, and is also used to refer to the whole of the Svalbard archipelago. It may be a corruption of ‘Greenland,’ with which this land was confused
