Cover Story：Beijing Geological Scientific Research Experimental Base of Chinese Academy of Geological Sci-ences(CAGS) (design sketch). It is one of the largest construction projects carried out by the Ministry of Land and Resources since its establishment, and it also embodies the long-term plan of CAGS for de-velopment of scientific research and innovative strategy. The implementation of this great project was based on the instruction of Premier LI Ke-qiang. The Base of CAGS lies at the Yongfeng Production Base of Haidian District in Beijing. The floorage of this construction project covers 75 544 m2, and the prin-cipal part includes three buildings for scientific re-search experimentation. After its completion, the base is to accommodate nine ministry-level key labo-ratories, and is expected to become the first-rate geo-logical scientific research experimental base in the world and an international academic exchange center. Combined perfectly with the main body of CAGS in Baiwanzhuang which is proud of its long geological research history and fruitful research achievements, the Beijing Geological Scientific Research Experi-mental Base of CAGS will surely accelerate the development of geological research work and create new brilliant achievements.
