The government of Mozambique will launch an international public tender to award a contract to carry an exhaustive geological survey of the country in order to know in detail the existing mineral resources.

The geological survey to be carried out will complement the geophysical survey already conducted in the southern area of the province of Nampula and in the north of the province of Zambezia. “The geophysical survey, using air assets, was completed in those two areas and the second phase, of geological survey on the scale 1/50 000, is now being scheduled,” added Elias Daudi, national director of Geology and Mines.

The director did not reveal the amounts involved in this operation, considering that it will depend on the international tender to be launched, but added that the funding is already secured through the World Bank.
