GMIS-Tanzania web portal upgraded
Minerogenic Map of Tanzania published

18th May 2015, Dodoma (Tanzania)

Recently, the GMIS Tanzania („Geological and Mineral Information System of Tanzania") was upgraded with new functionalities: The Mining Cadastral Data was made available and various datasets have been made available for download: The geological map, the mineral occurrences data and the location of mines and prospects at a scale of 1:2,000,000, as well as the SRTM elevation map.

The combination of geological and economic-geological data with the mining cadastral data makes the GMIS Tanzania an unique source of information for mining sector investment decision making. The GMIS Tanzania will be further completed and upgraded as new data becomes available. We wish all our partners and clients much success in using the improved system.
