The Council for Geoscience (CGS) is one of the National Science Councils of South Africa. It was established by the Geoscience Act (100 of 1993)and is the national custodian for the collection and curation of all onshore and off shore geoscience information in South Africa. It is mandated to investigate a wide range of surface and subsurface, onshore and off shore geoscience matters. These include, but are not limited to, geology, geochemistry, geophysics, engineering geology, economic geology, geohazards and geohydrology. The organisation performs these duties mainly through Government funds and, to a lesser extent, through collaborations with private and public institutions, including institutions of higher education. Furthermore, the CGS is also mandated to provide for the promotion of research and the extension of knowledge in the field of geoscience as well as the provision of specialised geoscientific services. It aims to use this information to develop geoscience solutions to real-world challenges.
