Over 100 known gold occurrences in Egypt have been mined at times, for at least 5000 years. They are confined to the Neoproterozoic of the Eastern Desert, spectacularly exposed over 100,000 sq. km.
A series of slides and satellite images will show their geology, together with ancient mining and processing tools, and the remains of ancient mining settlements. The formation and evolution of the Neoproterozoic of the Eastern Desert will be outlined as well as results of some new research on the genesis of the gold. All based on the presenter’s 4-year experience in the Arabian-Nubian Shield, including 2 years in the Eastern Desert.
Our guest speaker will be Zygmunt Jakubiak who holds an MSc in Geology from the University of Wrocław, Poland, and an MSc/DIC in Mineral Exploration from the Royal School of Mines, Imperial College, University of London.
He has over 40 years of worldwide experience in geology, mostly in exploration for gold and base metals, feasibility studies and mine development projects. He is the director and principal of Mineral Consulting International Limited and a non-executive director of Resilience Mining Mongolia Pty Ltd.
