Additional Further Reading:
- Limited geochemical and airborne geophysical data is available for Zimbabwe through the Southern and Eastern African Mineral Centre (SEAMIC) database. The SEAMIC hosted Geodesa-project in Dar Es Salaam makes available, for purchase, to anyone interested its inventory on CD-ROM of regional exploration surveys. This is the result of a large cataloguing exercise in the region and it provides an easy reference to existing geophysical and geochemical exploration surveys in 13 Eastern and Southern African countries, without containing the actual data-sets. The CD-ROM directs the user to the actual owners of the data. In some cases the Geo-Information section of SEAMIC has made arrangements with the government concerned to make available specific surveys directly from SEAMIC, on behalf of those governments;
