Welcome, The Geological Survey of Tanzania (GST)

The Geological Survey of Tanzania (GST) is responsible to acquisition, processing and storage of geoscientific data/information(custodian of the nation’s geoscientific data/information). The information collected are disseminated in user friendly format to stakeholders to facilitate the exploration and exploitation of earth available resources in promotion of mining investments in the country. GST monitors geo-hazards; verifying mineral resources and mineral occurrence information across the country; provide prospecting samples export permits; provide geo-environmental & geotechnical consultancy services; provide extension services to small scale miners as well as advice the Government on geoscientific technical issues.

Availability of newly acqu...

The Geological Survey of Tanzania is pleased to announce the availability of newly acquired high Resolution Airborne Geophysical Data covering Lupa Goldfield, and Singida and Handeni Corridor in Tanzania.

The Data was acquired in 2012 and 2013 Geotech Airborne Limited by Sander Geophysics Limited. Data Sander control was done by British Geological Survey in Collaboration with GST.

The ultimate goal of the airborne geophysics was to delineate targets for discovery of the new mineral deposits which will attract exploration investment in the mineral sector.

The regional airborne geophysical survey comprised of a 556,880 line kilometer fixed wing Magnetic and Radiometric Survey at a line spacing of 250m, ground clearance of 60m and 2,500m tie line spacing. Also a total of 57,980 line kilometer fixed wing Gravity survey has been flown utilizing 2,500m line spacing, ground clearance of 60m and 17,500m... Read More »
