Abstract:Until 1927, geological work in Malawi was the responsibility of the Public Works Department. In 1927, a separate Geological Survey Department was created. This department concentrated on water supply and mineral survey work. This paper describes the development of this Department up to 1970, also paying attention to its staff and the financing of its work. Ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
