Geological Surveys Department Becomes An Institute (Posted Dec 2000) Tell your friends about this page! Email it to them. 

The old Geological Surveys Department of the Ministry of Solid Minerals has been converted to an independent institute. The department which will now be known as the Geological Surveys Institute of Nigeria, predates the independence of Nigeria in 1960.

Started around the 1940s, it had during the colonial times, virtually explored and mapped out all areas where solid mineral deposits could be found in Nigeria. Now independent once again, the Geological Surveys Institute is expected to bring its rich traditions of performance to bear on government’s current efforts to boost the solid minerals sector. The renamed institute would be free to go into partnership with foreign investors or researchers, and raise funds on its own for research purposes. It can also commercialise its findings.
