Geological Mapping and Mineral Assessment Project (GEMMAP).

This project has two components:           

COMPONENT 1: Concerns the geological mapping project of the country, which will be entrusted to an operator who will work hand in hand with Geological Survey Department. It includes:

  • A geological survey of the whole of Malawi, generating maps with a scale of 1/100,000 (40 maps), plus overview maps showing geological, tectonic and seism tectonic features and other natural risks. The operator will use conventional geological mapping techniques for the purpose, interpreting all pre-existing data, including satellite data and data from the geophysical survey funded by the World Bank. After technical equipment and logistical resources have been acquired, systematic reconnaissance surveys will be organised with several mixed teams working simultaneously at a regular pace. Survey work will be accompanied by geological sampling in order to provide petrographic, geochemical, geochronological and other information;
  • An inventory of mineral resources in order to draw up maps of the country's potential. These documents, derived from geological observations, geophysical data and mineral indicators, will give an initial overview of theoretical potential. After consulting the Malawi authorities, field studies will be conducted in selected zones to give a real assessment of the potential, mainly by soil geochemistry and reconnaissance of mineral indicators. The information will provide the basis for metallogenic maps and factsheets, on an appropriate scale, and a summary metallogenic report.
  • the preparation of summary cartographic documents showing natural risks (landslide, rockslide, earthquake and flood zones) for the implementation of prevention policies in the country's development plans;
  •  Technical support for artisanal mining, a sector that already exists in Malawi and could certainly be developed. An assessment of the methods currently in use should help to boost the sector and to implement environmentally responsible and more economically effective practices;
  • Training at several levels, by involving geological survey and other government staff in fields related to the project through work-shadowing and mentoring, both in Malawi and at the operator's site. The project will also provide sponsorship to academicians at the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at Chancellor College for advanced training and research in fields that are related to the project. In addition, specialist courses may be provided or introduced through the project at the Geography and Earth Sciences Department in Zomba.
  • Support for improvement of laboratory equipment such as pulverisers, thin sections preparation equipment, atomic absorption spectroscopy, XRF and construction of documentation centre a Geological Survey Department in Zomba. This equipment may also be used for research purposes by the academic staff and students of the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at Chancellor College, University of Malawi.

  COMPONENT 2: concerns the bodies that coordinate and manage the project, including the Coordinating COMMITTEE (CC) as provided for in Article 5 of the FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT between the Malawi and French administrations.
