Location of the NUWEIBI Project
Nuweibi is located 17km to the south-southwest of the Abu Dabbab deposit and 30km inland from the western shore of the Red Sea.
History of the NUWEIBI Project
Tin mineralisation was first discovered at Nuweibi in 1944 but it was not until 1970 that tantalum was recognised. The deposit was the subject of detailed exploration by the same joint Soviet-Egyptian team that explored Abu Dabbab. The work included 23 diamond drill holes totalling 2,746m, four surface trenches and four bulk samples for metallurgical testwork.
Geology of the NUWEIBI Project
The Nuweibi mineralisation is hosted by an apogranite intrusive within a sequence of schists, gabbro, serpentinite older granites and dykes of varying composition. The apogranite that hosts the mineralisation is comprised of three main facies, an upper, middle and lower, each separated by transition zones.
