Heavy minerals, including monazite, in Egypt's black sand

1989-4-1  Egypt's heavy-mineral sands are derived during flood times from the upper reaches of the Nile, transported down the river and its tributaries to the Mediterranean, and concentrated by the sea. During its northward course through Egypt, the Nile rarely receives water from the surrounding areas, except during cloudbursts [5].

Heavy minerals, including monazite, in Egypt's black sand

Egypt's black sand deposits are located in the Nile Delta between Alexandria and Rosetta. They contain substantial reserves of heavy-mineral sands. This paper discusses the geologic history of the Nile Valley and the possible source of heavy minerals.

2021-2-3  Mining in Egypt relates to the country’s significant mineral bodies of tantalite, coal, gold, iron ore and heavy mineral sands. While mining in Egypt has a long history that predates antiquity, it has been under-explored in more modern times, meaning large mineral deposits remain intact, offering excellent investment potential for affluent discoveries.
