NEWS & EVENTS
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.
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).
Between 8 July and 8 August 2019 a total of 956 waypoints have been recorded within the first field area covering the three 1:50,000 map sheets Namecuna (395), Merripa (396) and Norre (397). A team of nine field geologists used personal electronic devices and digital mapping software to complete the work using GIS data packages prepared by IGS. The field camp was situated at Riane in Ribaue District (Nampula Province).
