The Peaks Metals &
Mining Technology Company & The Ministry of
mining and Industry of the Government of the
Islamic Republic of Mauritania signed agreements
in December 2006 by issuing license to the
company for conducting scientific explorations
for Gold, Base metals and Iron in four licensed
areas in the republic of Mauritania within a
period of three years from December 2006.
Bou zraibia in Assaba and Gorgol in Al Brakna regions
Trarza and Adrar regions
Midneth Al sabath in Al Adrar and
in Trarza and Adrar regions
Base metals ( Non ferrous metals excluding
Precious Au, Ag, Pt Metals) These include
Copper, Chromium, Aluminum ,Lead, Zink, Nickel,
Tin ,Rare-earth elements etc.
All the company
licenses areas fall within the NEOPROTEROZOIC
N-S striking Mauritanide Belt. The Mauritanide
Origin is one of the West African fold belts.
Largely ALOCHTHONOUS, the Mauritanides rest in
abnormal contact on the crystalline terrains of
the REGUIBAT shield and the platform cover of
the TAOUDENI Basin. Many gold and copper
prospects extend along the length of the
southern Mauritanide origin.
Range, as such extends between the latitudes of
15° and 20° N and the longitudes of 12° and 15°
W. It is a long belt extending from the Western
Sahara towards in the north, up to Sierra Leone
in the south, extending through western
Mauritania and the eastern part of Senegal.
In the west, the
Mauritanides bound the West African shield. They
consist of strongly folded and tectonised
sedimentary and metamorphic formations, deformed
during the Pan-African, Caledonian and Hercynian
orogenic events. It contains the Akjoujt copper
and gold deposits, and many other copper, gold
and chromium occurrences.
structural zones are distinguished, generally
bounded by tectonic thrust contacts following a
sub meridian strike:
