As Ghana News Agency reports, the Geology Department of the University of Ghana received geophysical equipment worth $50,000 to improve training for students in geophysics. The equipment was donated by Newmont's Exploration and Geophysics Department in Ghana.
The equipment, used mainly in electrical geophysical surveys, include two Zonge receivers and their accessories, rechargeable lead acid, non-spillable battery and charger, circuit board and manuals for the geophysical data processers.
Professor Daniel Asiedu, the Dean of the Faculty of Science at the Department of Earth Science, commended Newmont for coming to the aid of the students.
“Without physically seeing equipment like these, it is usually difficult for the students to understand and appreciate what we teach them “, the Dean said.
