The Federal Government is set to embark on airborne geophysical survey in 19 states.

Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Hon. Olamilekan Adegbite recently revealed this in Akure, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the survey is meant to determine the accurate deposits of mineral resources across Nigeria, so citizens should not be afraid.

He added that it is time for FG to determine accurate mineral locations using modern day contemporary aeromagnetic mechanism.

His words, “The survey will be measuring minor variations in the earth’s magnetic fields and gamma radiations in the soil.”

“It is slated to start this June 2021 and will run through a period of about eight months but less than a month over a state, depending on weather conditions.”
