Abstract/Summary

Since 1994, the Council for Geoscience and its staff were made extremely welcome throughout Africa. The new dawn started with a steady stream of CGS geologists giving papers at international conferences and attending meetings and workshops in many African countries where friendships and research collaborations were established, many of which continue to this day. At the same time as the geologists were making these links, the tireless efforts of Nok Frick (having led the Geological Survey of South Africa into to being the parastatal Council for Geoscience) to win commercial geological mapping projects in African countries, sometimes funded by the countries themselves or by agencies such as the World Bank, were bearing fruit.
