Malawi to conduct survey to explore mining potential


Malawi: The Malawi government through the ministry of mining will conduct an airborne geophysical survey with the aim of highlighting the mineral potential that several areas in the country possess as a part of the Mining Growth and Governance Support Project.

Minister of mining John Bande said, “In addition to the airborne geospatial exploration, geological mapping and geochemical exploration covering the whole country, have been lined up. After all these activities, the whole country will be well mapped and we’ll know the full mineral potential of the country.”

During the survey, aeroplanes will be flying as low as 60 meters above the ground at 250 meters line spacing while collecting various geospatial data especially magnetics, radiometrics and gravity.
