OFFICAL LAUNCH OF THE CONTRY-WIDE HIGH RESOLUTION AIRBORNE GEOPHYSICAL DATA
The Government of Malawi through the Ministry of Natural Resources Energy and Mining has been conducting a Country-wide High Resolution Airborne Geophysical Survey with the aim of acquiring new magnetic, radiometric and gravity data for the promotion of the mineral sector. This exercise is a component of the Mining Governance and Growth Support Project (MGGSP) which is co-financed by World Bank and European Union.
The data acquisition phase was conducted between September 2013 and August 2014. The project acquired high resolution Magnetic and Radiometric data covering the entire land of Malawi and Gravity data in three blocks.
