EDM participates in the Institutional and Technical Cooperation Mission to Mozambique
With the presence of Zélia Estevão and Edgar Carvalho EDM has participated in an Institutional Cooperation Mission to Mozambique, which took place between the 13th and 18th of April. The visit was under the Mineral Resources scope.
The mission took place under the scope of the Cooperation Protocol for Mineral Resources, signed between the Directorate-General for Energy and Geology (DGEG) and INAMI – National Institute of Mines of Mozambique. The visit was led by João Bernardo, General-Director of DGEG, and counted with the presence of the respective leaders of the Services Directorate for the Strategy and Promotion of Geological Resources (DSEFRG), Services Directorate for Mines and Quarries (DSMP) and Directorate of Institutional Relations and Market (DSRIM). The main objective of this mission was to enhance strategic cooperation in the area of geological resources between Portugal and Mozambique, through the sharing of experience, knowledge and information. These exchanges took place not only during the fields visit, but also during the meetings which were held with the National Institute of Mines, along administrators and district delegates from the provinces of Gaza and Maputo.
The mission also made it possible to obtain a better understanding of the reality in Mozambique, through technical visits to different geological resources explorations, namely the Chibuto Heavy Sand mine, the Rhyolite and Bentonite extraction areas of Namaacha and also from the sand extraction areas of Boane.
As part of the visit programme, there was also a meeting with members of the Portuguese Embassy and also with the Director of the AICEP delegation in Maputo.
