Who We Are

The Geological Society of Kenya (GSK) is a non-profit making, non-political organization established in 1974 as an umbrella organization representing the professional interests of all geologists in Kenya. GSK has been instrumental in championing the rights, welfare and needs of its members and the geology fraternity at large. Among the achievements of the Society are the establishment of a Scheme of Service for Geologists in 1989, the enactment of the Geologists Registration Act No. 10 of 1993 and the establishment of the Kenya Chamber of Mines. More recently (in 2012) the Society initiated Mineral Clinics as a means of reaching out to the general public with extension services in the areas of rock and mineral identification and imparting of skills in mineral prospecting, mining and mineral processing.
