Mozambique MAGTAP project – second field campaign highlights

The second field campaign lasted from 26th August to 4th October 2019 and covered map sheets 393 Mutuali, 394 Malema, 433 Nintulo and 434 Inago - the most western sheets. Preliminary geological maps for the area have been ground truthed by the nine geologists involved who come from six organisations.

Over 1400 new waypoints have been added to the field database, with 349 on Mutuali, 419 on Malema, 335 on Nintulo and 346 on Inago. These will be added to the 290 waypoints inherited from earlier projects. 

A substantial number of samples are stored in Nampula at the Direcção Provincial dos Recursos Minerais e Energia (DIPREME) awaiting transport to laboratories in South Africa and Europe.

IGS Providing Technical Support to the Saudi Geological Survey

IGS has been assisting the Saudi Geological Survey (SGS) in compiling and reviewing a range of documentation associated with the Kingdom’s ambitious program to map the Arabian Shield. This program will generate high-resolution datasets for geology, geophysics and geochemistry. Along with the development of a National Core Library and a National Geo Data Centre the program forms part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

IGS is honoured to be part of this program, which represents one of the largest single programs of geo-scientific data collection being considered.  

Mozambique MAGTAP project – Supervisory team meets field team during second field campaign

The MAGTAP technical supervision team (Hannu Makitie and Esko Korkiakoski), and representatives of the client organisations INAMI (Vladimiro Manhica) and DNGM (Elias Daudi), visited the field team during the second field campaign. The field team consists of geologists from IGS, BRGM, GONDWANA, INAMI, DNGM, and DIPREME Nampula. They undertook a joint field excursion through the north-eastern part of map sheet Malema (394) which exposes granulites. The second field campaign started on 26 August and is operating from a field camp near Malema in Nampula Province. The four 1:50,000 map sheets being surveyed are Mutuali (393), Malema (394), Nintulo (433) and Inago (434).
