The survey is meant to determine the accurate mineral locations using modern-day contemporary magnetic and radiometric methods.

The Minister explained that the survey was critical to de-risking the sector thus making it attractive to both local and foreign investors, adding that the development would ultimately lead to more job creations and increased revenue for government.

The minister equally observed that country had a lot to gain from the survey, explaining that the benefits from the survey would transcend the mining sector into other spheres of the economy.

Adegbite also advised the general public in the States and Local Governments that would be covered by this survey not to panic either as a result of the loud noise of the aircraft due to the low flying altitude maintained by the aircraft or the pattern of movement of the aircraft.

The Project Co-coordinator, MINDIVER, Salim Salaam said that the survey would cover 19 States of the federation covering 112 Local Government Areas in order to determine accurate mineral locations using modern-day contemporary aeromagnetic mechanisms.
