GeoPoint’s data sources

GeoPoint represents more than six years of research and collation of data and metadata on African geology by experienced geoscientists.

The locations of geological maps, cross-sections, mineral occurrences and geochronological information have been extracted from peer-reviewed journal articles and publicly-available technical or company reports (e.g. 43-101, JORC), including:

  • Precambrian Research
  • Ore Geology Reviews
  • Tectonophysics
  • Journal of African Earth Sciences
