NEWS & EVENTS

IGS attends Mining Indaba, 2019

Frik Hartzer attended the Mining Indaba 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa in February 2019. The general mood during the Indaba was definitely more optimistic than previous years. South Africa in particular made a major effort to show that recent political changes should eventually be reflected in a better exploration and investment friendly atmosphere. Other countries that made significant presentations were Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. From an IGS perspective the Indaba was successful with established contacts renewed and new contacts generated.

IGS completes Lao Geological Mapping Project

IGS, in partnership with GTK (Finland) and PGW (Canada), recently completed a geological mapping project in Lao PDR. The client was the Government of Lao PDR and it was financed by the World Bank. The project area consisted of two 1: 50 000 map sheets in the Nambak and Ngoy areas of north-central Lao PDR. The project started with a high-density aerial geophysical survey executed by Sanders (Canada). The data was interpreted by PGW in Toronto and integrated with existing geological data by IGS. This was followed by field mapping by IGS and GTK and analyses of geochemical samples. The final products consisted of two geological maps and a comprehensive explanation to the maps including an assessment of the existing mineral deposits of the area and an estimation of the mineral potential elsewhere in the area. The project ended with workshop in Vientiane during which the results were presented to the client.

Completion of the Cameroon Supervision Geology Project

IGS is currently completing a World Bank financed project in Cameroon. The project is titled Supervision d’un programme de cartographie géologique et géochimique et la mise en place d’un Système d’Informations Géologiques et Minières au Cameroun. IGS, under the banner of its previous name BGSi, and in partnership with CGS (South Africa), supervised the project executed by the BRGM. The project started in 2016 and will be finished by March 2019 when the final products are expected. IGS supervised the implementation of the three main components of the project included geological mapping of 13 map sheets at a scale of 1:200 000, collection and analyses of about 18,500 geochemical samples from the same area and the construction of a national GIS-based database (information system) which will contain all relevant geological information for Cameroon. IGS assisted Precasem in Cameroon to define the project, wrote the Terms of Reference and assisted them in the evaluation of tenders and the appointment of a consultant. In addition to the role of quality control of the 3 sub-programmes IGS also assisted Precasem in the development of a data management and dissemination policy for the new National Geological Database.
