IGS is contracted by the Ugandan Directorate Of Geological Survey and Mines (DGSM) to quality control a large geological survey. The geological mapping and the stream sediment geochemical survey in the Karamoja region is being carried out by Xcalibur Multiphysics.

IGS geologists are currently reviewing re-mapped regional geological maps (1:250 000 scale) and supporting the implementation of stream sediment sampling. A site visit was made by Dr. Reik Degler in March 2022 for assessment of field work in the Karamoja region and technical meetings with DGSM project management in Entebbe.

Due to safety issues, all field activities are currently suspended for the Karamoja region.
