ASM Handbook for Malawi

The Pan-African Support to the EuroGeoSurveys-Organisation of African Geological Surveys Partnership, abbreviated to PanAfGeo, is a project, which supports training of geoscientific staff from African Geological Surveys through the development of an innovative training program. This specific training program, conducted by world-class geoscientific experts from Africa and Europe, includes the acquisition and development of important professional skills that complement geoscientific staff members’ technical qualifications. The PanAfGeo Project allows trainees to acquire a state-of-the-art geoscientific tool kit, to learn new and relevant research methods on geology, and to take part in field trips covering eight geoscientific domains. This Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining (ASM) Handbook for Malawi is the result of a training session held in Lilongwe, Malawi in November 2018 through the sub-program on ASM under the overall PanAfGeo Project.
