Geology & Mineral Exploration

The Geological Survey of Pakistan (GSP) is responsible for the study of geology of the country in all pertinent details and to assess its geological resource potential. GSP produces disseminated geological information for government departments, planning, industry and education. We create databases, geological maps and mineral exploration.
