Angola inks deal to conduct geophysics, geochemical survey

26 june 2014

The Angolan government through the Geology and Mining ministry has signed a deal with three unnamed foreign firms to carry out the country's geophysics and geochemical survey.
Angola Press agency reports that part of the deal would also allow locals to receive training to run the National Geological and Mining Plan (Planageo) in the coming years.
Planageo was formulated to determine the extent and location of the country's potential mineral deposits via a nationwide aerial survey.
Geology and Mining minister Francisco Queiroz said another foreign firm would advise his ministry and the Geological Institute regarding the management of the nationwide project.
He said after the first geophysical survey, geologists were expected to gather samples where geological anomalies are noted.
The samples, Queiroz said, would then be taken to a laboratory to establish the type of mineral that exists as part of regional mapping.
Upun completion of mapping, the data would then be stored in a database to bring together all the geological information.
The information would be made available to prospective investors, thereafter.
