NEWS & EVENTS
IGS staff member Paul Turner was recently due to appear as a chorus member in the new amateur theatre production of Feargus the Musical, a show based on the life of 19th century radical Nottingham politician Feargus O'Connor. However, Paul was thrust into the main role of Feargus when the original actor fell ill only days before the production was due on stage. Paul is pictured centre stage in the top hat.
The musical was written by local Nottingham historian and musician Brian Lund and featured a 25 strong cast with 19 new songs. Any profits from the show will be going to two local charities.
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 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.
