Geophysical and Geochemical Surveys Project

The Geophysical and Geochemical Survey Project has been undertaken under the Mineral Sector Development Technical Assistance Project funded by the Nordic Development Fund and the Government of Tanzania (MSD-TA/NDF). The four year project has been implemented from 2003 to 2007, by the Geological Survey of Tanzania (GST) with technical consultancy from Geological Survey of Finland (GTK).

The primary objective of the project is to identify priority areas with high mineral potential and promote them for investment, in order to sustain the growth of the mineral sector. Under this project high quality data of geophysical, geological and geochemical have been produced from selected areas and are available at GST for sale.  The maps and data produced include:

  • Airborne geophysical data  (raw and processed) consisting of magnetics, radiometric, EM and DEM for QDS for Mpanda area (QDS 153, 154 and 155), Musoma (parts of QDS 4, 5, 12 and 13), Biharamulo area (QDS 30, 44 and western parts of QDS 31and 45), Kahama area (QDS 62 and 78)
  • Interpreted airborne geophysical maps for QDS for Mpanda area (QDS 153, 154 and 155), Musoma (parts of QDS 4, 5, 12 and 13), Biharamulo area (QDS 30, 44 and western parts of QDS 31and 45), Kahama area (QDS 62 and 78
  • Geochemical maps and raw data for Mpanda area (QDS 153), Biharamulo area (QDS 30, 44) and  Kahama area (QDS 62 and 78)
  • Geological maps at scale of 1:100,000 for Mpanda area (QDS 153), Biharamulo area (QDS 30, 44) and Kahama area (QDS 62 and 78)
  • Geological block maps at a scale 1:500,000 covering Kigoma-Mpanda and Rukwa areas.
  • Airborne geophysical maps at a scale of 1:500,000 covering the Lake Victoria region, Kigoma-Mpanda and Rukwa regions.
