Basalt Rock Intrusion in the Eastern Sahara Desert

|Views: 12|Likes:
Volcanic intrusion millions of years ago in this part of the Sahara Desert and the Arabian Shield brought these rocks to the surface of the earth. Neglected for centuries as just barren rock, they are now revealing rich metal content below. Called volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits, such mineral assemblage is being mined at Sukari in Egypt, Bisha in Eritrea, Jabal Sayid in Saudi Arabia and soon at Hassai in Sudan.
