The Geological Survey of Iran (GSI) was established in 1962, through a special fund project of United Nations. The GSI is authorized to carry out geological and mineral investigations throughout the country, to collect results of activities performed in this respect, to establish interrelationship and coordination between such activities and to prepare, complete, and publish geological maps of Iran. In 1999, the exploration duties of the Ministry of Mines and Metals were totally assigned to the GSI. The GSI is now responsible for the geological study of the country, and the exploration-evaluation of the mineral resources (except hydrocarbons).
