The Department of Geology, Akwa Ibom State University, recently embarked on a field work in parts of Cross River and Akwa Ibom States. The Field studies, Practicals and Demonstrations were done within the Pre-Cambrian basement complex of Oban Massif in North Eastern Cross Rivers State. Other geologic sites visited were the limestone caves of Mfamosing, New Netim Marl Formation, Awi Sandstone, Kwa Falls and Ekenkpon Shales.
