Maputo, Mozambique — 12 March 2012 – The Mozambique’s Mining Resources Ministry (Mirem) has launched and released the new geological map-book of Mozambique which, on a 1:1 000 000 scale, outlines the geology of Mozambique and its potential, including new information such as updated international coding of geological units and their names.

The map-book, which is available from the Documentation Centre of the Mozambique National Geology Directorate, is the result of work carried out by Mirem with a view to improving international knowledge of Mozambique’s geological and mining facilities, reports Macauhub.

The map-book includes 102 pages of geological mapping of the whole of Mozambique on a scale of 1:250 000; geological mapping on a 1:50 000 scale for the provinces of Niassa, Tete and Manica; and an inventory and geo-chemical survey of industrial mining resources.

In Mozambique there are seven seismographic stations in operation in the provinces of Maputo, Gaza, Inhambane, Manica, Tete, Zambézia and Nampula.

The previous geological map of Mozambique on a scale of 1:1 000 000 was drawn up in 1987.
