Mozambique, officially the Republic of Mozambique is a country in Southeast Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest.

Mozambique is divided into 10 Provinces and one capital city with provincial status. The provinces are subdivided into 129 Districts. The Districts are further divided into 405 Administrative Posts and then into Localities, the lowest geographical level of the central state administration.

Note that the only official language of Mozambique is Portuguese, which is spoken mostly as a second language by about half of the population.



Cartografia Geológica em Moçambique.

A exploração das riquezas mineiras do território moçambicano remonta desde os tempos pré-coloniais do reino de Monomotapa. Mas só nos finais do séc. XIX surgem os primeiros trabalhos geológico-mineiros: são iniciativas particulares desenvolvidas principalmente (mas exclusivamente) nas áreas adjacentes ao Cratão Zimbabweano. A compilação destes trabalhos permite a elaboração dos primeiros esquemas geológico-mineiros de Moçambique, primeiro por A. Freire de Andrade (1908, 1917), depois por C. Freire de Andrade (1929); é justo não esquecer as sínteses regionais de A. Holmes (1912, 1918), E. Thiele (1923) e R. Walls (1923).

Em 1928 é criada a Repartição encarregada dos Serviços de Geologia e Minas de Moçambique; ela vai organizar, as duas décadas seguintes, o reconhecimento geológico-mineiro das areas consideradas mais favoráveis/potenciais. Os nomes de A. Borges e de A. Freitas merecem uma referência especial: a eles está ligada a publicação, respectivamente em 1949 e 1956, dos primeiros Esboços Geológicos de Moçambique na escala de 1:2.000.000.

Em 1948 é dado um novo impulso com a criação das Brigadas de Fomento Mineiro, orientadas para a inventariação de 1) minerais radioactivos, grafite, ouro, ferro, e bauxite nas Provincias de Tete e Manica, 2) carvão nas provincias de Tete, Niassa e Manica, 3) minerais não-metalicos nas Provincias de Sofala, Inhambane e Maputo.

No que respeita a actividade de empresas privadas destaca-se a Moçambique Gulf Oil Co que iniciou, em 1948, trabalhos de pesquisa de petróleo nas bacias sedimentares de Moçambique, e a E.J. Longyear Co. que procedeu em 1954-55, ao reconhecimento geológico das regiões de Tete e Alto Ligonha.

A síntese de todos resultados das actividades geológicas até então obtidos conduziu a publicação do "Esboço Geológico das Provincias de Moçambique na escala de 1:2.000.000 (Freitas, 1956 e 59), do "Esboço Tectónico da Provincia de Moçambique na escala de 1:3.000.000" (Dias 1956) e da "Carta Geológica da area pegmatitica do Alto Ligonga na escala de 1:250.000" (Nunes, 1958).

Em 1957 é criada a Missão de Fomento de Povoamento do Zambeze; a sua actividade culminaria com a publicação da "Geologia da Bacia do Rio Zambeze" (Real, 1966), que sintetiza os conhecimentos da época e inclui uma Carta dos Jazigos Minerais na escala de 1:100.000.

A partir de 1961, a geologia de Moçambique experimenta um avanço qualitative com a criação das Brigadas Geológicas do II Plano de Fomento, ou seja dos Serviços Geológico Nacional. Iniciam-se os levantamentos geológicos sistemáticos a escala de 1:250.000, realizadas por geologos portugueses (R. Afonso, J.R. Araujo, A. Barrocoso, B. Ferro, J. Gouveia, A. Moura, M.S. Pinto e J. Rebolo) e ainda W. Oberholzer, a que se juntarão a partir dos finais dos anos 60 o grupo frances da BRGM e os da Universidade de Moçambique. A síntese destes trabalhos conduz a uma importante cartografia 1:250.000, bem como à "Carta Geológica de Moçambique de 1:2.000.000" (Oberholzer, 1968); 2a edição em 1976, com noticia explicativa por R. Afonso) e a "Carta dos Jazigos e Ocorrências Minerais 1:2.000.000 (Goveia, 1974).

Com a proclamação da independência em 1975, os trabalhos de prospecção e pesquisa geológicas abrem-se à participação de geologos estrangeiros, nomeadamente do Brasil, Bulgaria, França, Itália, Portugal, Suécia, Hungria, reino unido e antigas Checoslovaquia, Jugoslavia, RDA e URSS.

Em 1982, o grupo ingles Hunting Geology and Geophysics, Ltd procede ao levantamento fotogeológico, com o apoio de campo, da parte occidental de Moçambique (adjacente ao cratão zimbabweano) às escalas de 1:100.000 e 1:250.000. A apartir de 1983, a DNg elabora, em colaboração de técnicos romenos, diversas cartas fotogeológicas à escala de 1:50.000 das formações recentes das provincias de Maputo, Gaza, Inhambane, Sofala e Zambézia. Em 1980 a BRGM dá ao inicio de compilação da "Carta Geológica de Moçambique à escala de 1:1.000.000" (Pinna, 1984) e da "Carta Geológica da parte Norte de Moçambique à escala de 1:1.000.000" (Pinna et al, 1987).

A carta de jazigos e ocorrências minerais foi eleborada no periodo de 1986 –1989 por uma equipa soviética da empresa V/O Zarubechgeologia (Ministerio da Geologia da ex URSS). A cartografia metalogénica vai acompanhar vai resultar deste esforço. Primeiro com a elaboração, no periodo entre 1982-84, de uma "Carta Metalogénica de Moçambique na escala de 1:2.000.000" (Laechelt, 1984); tendo em conta o volume da informação disponível. Mais tarde, em 1986, os técnicos sovieticos da V/O Zarubechgeologia vão elaborar, para além da "Carta Cosmogeológica de Moçambique na escala de 1:1.000.000 (interpretação de imagens de satellite), a Carta de Jazigos e Ocorrência Minerais de Moçambique na escala 1:1.000.000, concluida em 1989.
