STATEMENT BY THE MCG ON THE GEOLOGICAL MAP OF MALTA

The Malta Chamber of Geologists does not endorse the 'updated' geological map of Malta which was recently published online by the Continental Shelf Department within the Ministry of Finance and without any consultation and input of the Chamber of Geologists. 

The Geological map includes numerous errors and omissions and should be used with caution and only following the advice from a professional Geologist.

A geological map that is erroneous undermines public safety.  3.12.2022

Geologists say ‘updated’ map is replete with errors and omissions (maltatoday.com.mt)
