  • Description

    The mineral-rich Congo-Kinshasa has another potential economic money spinner -- oil. It was originally found in 1968 in Central Province, and the latest find in December last ear (1970) -- was near the Atlantic coast. Oil is definitely present, but it remains to be seen whether any of the finds are worth exploiting. the country already has two refineries producing petroleum and its die-products from imported oil. Our film shows an oil-exploration team operating in the traditional way -- exploding charges underground and recording the tell-tale shock waves on a seismograph.
