Delonex Energy Mozambique Ltd in partnership with IMPACTO carried out seismic studies at the border between the provinces of Maputo and Gaza, covering the districts of Moamba, Magude and Manhiça in Maputo Province and the districts of Bilene, Chóckwe, Chibuto, Guijá and Xai-Xai, Gaza Province.
The Project was registered at MITADER in January 2016 and was classified as a Category A Project and is subject to an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
IMPACTO conducted environmental studies that included the EPDA and the full ESHIA. In these studies, public consultations were carried out in order to share the findings of the environmental studies and establish a communication channel between the public and the Consultant, as well as between the public and the Proponent, to be used throughout the EIA process in a comprehensive, open and transparent manner.
This study was planned to cover about 1000 km of 2D seismic lines through vibroseis (trucks) and explosives.
