The project will produce updated countrywide geological map coverage.
A consortium of three geological survey organizations - BRGM, GTK and CGS - and the State of Malawi are signing an agreement for a countrywide geological mapping and mineral assessment programme.
The 10.2 M€ GEMMAP project (Geological Mapping and Mineral Assessment of Malawi), is financed by France under a debt agreement with the State of Malawi. The purpose of the Project is to support economic development in Malawi through growth and diversification of its mineral resources sector, through updated geological map coverage and an inventory of the country’s mineral potential at a sufficiently detailed scale (1/100 000). The Project was won through a tendering process by an international consortium led by BRGM in partnership with GTK, the Geological Survey of Finland, and CGS, the Geological Survey of South Africa. The agreement was signed on behalf of the Consortium by Vincent Laflèche, Chairman of the BRGM, and Kester Kaphaizi, Permanent Secretary of Malawi’s Ministry for Natural Resources, Energy and Mining.
