Munich, 22 June, 2007. GAF AG announced that it has been awarded a contract to set-up a new computerised and countrywide mining cadastre system for Nigeria.

The project activities include set-up of the new computerized mining cadastre in Nigeria, training, database generation and institutional strengthening. A key component is the design and development of the computerised mineral titling system SIGTIM which will be especially conceived for the new mining law in Nigeria – for the benefit of the administration, miners, investors as well as the public.
