London-Based Geologists' Visit [Transcript of newspaper cutting]
By a Staff Reporter
Twenty-six members of the London-based Geologists' Association (above) yesterday ended a week's visit to Malta during which they studied various aspects of the geology of Malta and Gozo and the stratigraphy and structure of the rocks of the Islands.
The party stayed at the Hotel Metropole and included Prof. D. V. Ager and members from England, France and Denmark. Mr. H.M. Pedley, Dr. B. Waugh and Prof. M.R. House of the University of Hull were also among the group's leaders.
One of the purposes of the visit was to demonstrate the conclusions resulting from work on the Islands extending over the past 20 years.
By courtesy of the Director of the Museum Department, visits were also made to sites of archaeological interest. Last Tuesday they visited the Geology section of the Museum of Natural History at Mdina and were most impressed by the presentation and quality of the exhibits prepared there by Dr. G. Zammit Maempel who, throughout the visit gave help and guidance to the party.
Two days were spent in Gozo studying the circular faults at Xiendi, Qawra, and around Dwejra Bay and Victoria. Marsalforn and Rant Bay.
In Malta the party spent some time studying the coastal sections around Marfa Ridge and the area between Fom ir-Rih and Ghajn Tuffieha. Several places in southern Malta were also visited.
The geological interest of Malta results from the particular position of the Islands between the two hydrographic basins of the Mediterranean and the link it provides between the rock sequences in Africa and southern Europe. During the past few years the Geologists Association has made similar visits to France, Italy, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Spain but this was the Association's first visit to Malta.
The party found many things of interest and met a number of geological problems which are still to be solved. Several members expressed the hope that they would be able to return soon.
