Next week, on 15 June 2016, the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining will launch the Geological Maping and Mineral Assessment Project (GEMMAP) which is financed by the French government.

The launch is to be presided over by Hon. Bright Msaka SC, the Minister of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining at Bingu International Conference Centre, Umodzi Park, Lilongwe. The event will start at 9am.

The project is to be a ground follow up on the Airborne Geophysical Survey (Kauniuni) that was conducted between 2013 and 2014 under the Malawi Mining Governance and Growth Support Project. According to the invitation,

The Project [GEMMAP] will help ascertain the exactitude of different minerals in the country and will assess the likelihood of natural risk (geo-hazards) across the country.

This project is being launched just a couple of months after the Government announced the development of a Geological Data Information Management Centre at the Geological Survey Department.

    • Dear Peter, please email me on mininginmalawi@gmail.com. I can provide the contact details in Government that are organising. That said, the draft programme looks quite short – just one technical presentation and the rest are speeches by the Minister, PS and French Government representative. Rachel
