Mining In Egypt

Mining in Egypt has a long history stemming back to pre-dynastic times. Egypt has substantial access to natural resources including Tantalite, Coal, Iron Ore, Phosphates, Salt, Asbestos, Limestone, Clays, Quartz, Titanium and Gold in the Eastern Desert.

Exploration in Sinai indicated the presence of various minerals including Zinc, Tin, Lead, Copper, and Uranium in the Nile Delta.     

The vast potential for mining brings Egypt to the forefront of this ever so growing industry.
