The British Geological Survey (BGS) is currently working with Fugro Airborne Surveys Pty Ltd on an EU-funded revision of the geology of the Volta and Keta Basins as part of the Mining Sector Support Program (Proj. 8ACP GH 027/13) for the Geological Survey Department (GSD) of Ghana. This geological revision is based on interpretations of airborne and satellite images in conjunction with two field campaigns. The methodology for the project will be summarised here, while the stratigraphical, mineral prospectivity, and database results are presented in later BGS abstracts in this volume, and referred to in the Excursion Guide which is included as an appendix.
