Ariab Mining Company also detains a second concession (Bloc18) located 250 Km south of Port Sudan near the main city of Derudeb at the Sudan -Eritrean border. Previous exploration in the area has confirmed the existence of VMS type deposit similar to those of Bloc11
One of them is the SBR/VMS deposit of Tagoteb and many other known potential with Manganese, Tungsten, Zinc and Cu. The recent geophysical survey on the western part of Bloc 18 has led to the discovery of important SBR/VMS deposits that AMC is planning to develop in 2016
Road, camp infrastructure, wells, proximity to Derudeb City (electricity, network, water, Hospital)
Easy access through asphaltic road passing in the concession and proximity to the harbour make the BLOC 18 the best project one can invest on for Exploration and mining.
The under explored Eastern part of the bloc represents more than 11000 km⊃2; poorly Explored with potential of discovery of Au associated with iron ore deposits
