BGSI is pleased to announce the securing of a major 3 year project in Afghanistan. The project, funded by the UK’s DFID (Department for International Development), will help improve the capabilities and resources of the Afghan Geological Survey (AGS) and the Afghan Ministry of Mines and Petroleum by providing equipment and training for AGS staff as well as promotional activities to advertise Afghanistan’s mineral resources to the wider world.
