Under the annual action plan for 2010 work is in progress on upgrading the Colombo - Rathnapura (Sheet # 13) of 1:100,000 scale geological maps series. This will involve field studies, petrological and chemical analysis of rock samples and preparation of a memoir. A main objective of the study is the demarcation of Highland Complex and Wanni complex boundary.

Also a research study on rocks of Vijayan Complex is in progress. Chemical, mineralogical and magnetic properties and geochronology of rocks are being studied to understand the origin and its relation with other boundary fragments.
