Comicode: Great Lakes Region - MIneralization COrridor, Regional DEvelopment COrridor.

This part of the project will focus on the factors: controlling the circulation of the mineralizing fluids and the precipitation of transported metallic elements (Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten, Gold, Nickel, etc.) in the cross-border area of the Great Lakes region.
 Advertising campaigns aimed at local decision-makers (mining cooperatives and companies, chambers of commerce, and industries) will contribute, to a market that tends to prosper in transparency, establishing a better governance framework. Their use, both upstream (allocation of licenses) and downstream (collection for the benefit of the populations of production statistics and associated revenues).

 As well as recognition and an affirmation that these geo-resources exist on both sides of the borders, if they were introduced transparently through the international marketing circuit, no regional conflict could be justified.

    Fellowship Program

    Program of Academic "capacity building", centered around three levels:

    - Contribution of scientists from CRGM service and other "invited guest speakers" into second cycle academic training programs (MSc) of the African partners through seminars and thematic conferences.

    - Academic, scientific, logistical, and financial support for fellows: fieldwork framed by scientists, and thesis work (MSc, DEA, Ph.D.) through “academic sandwich grants”:

    Research subjects

    Ph.D. Thesis:

    Subject 1: "Lithostructural control of the mineralizing fluids circulation and trapping of metallic components transported in the cross-border area of Kivu (Kalehe-Idjwi-Kamanyola) -Rwanda (Kibuye) -Burundi."

    Subject2: "Lithostructural control of the mineralizing fluids circulation and trapping of the transported metallic components: "tin, niobium-tantalum, tungsten and gold. Case of study: the formations of the quartzite ring of Murehe, the proximal formations in Kirundo, Ngozi and Muyinga, Republic of Burundi."
