Geophysical survey in Tanzania to uncover gold deposits


Tanzania: The Geological Survey of Tanzania (GST) has embarked on a high resolution airborne geophysical survey and data processing in Lupa goldfield and Singida Handeni corridor to delineate targets for new discoveries of mineral deposits.

GST senior trade officer Priscus Benard said the survey will lead to unearthing of deposits that would attract exploration investments in the mineral sector. The acquisition of survey data commenced in 2012 and all data, maps and results would be completed by early 2014.

“From the survey, among other things we are going to collect, process and interpret geophysical data essential in getting a better understanding of the potential mineral resources in the country. The data and information will also contribute to better understanding of the geological environment of the country”, Benard explained.
