When the basic geological mapping is finished by the end of 1957, it is proposed to retain the two geologists. One will take over the organisation of a possibly enlarged laboratory and receive any additional training necessary to enable him to undertake assays and chemical and silicate analyses. The other will assist the senior geologist in the investigation of mineral deposits, a branch of work very much on the increase owing to the ever increasing demands made by mining houses and prospectors.
