Abu Tartour mines

Abou Tratour Plateau lies 50 KM west of Kharga City, the capital of the New Valley Governorate in the southwestern Egypt. The Plateau is perfectly connected to the urban through a first class network of a heavy load asphaltic road. The distance between the airport and the mine is 45 minutes.

The phosphate  extracted from Abou Tartour mine is of grades ranging from 24-31% P2O5  and considered to be ideal for the production of  TSP, SSP, NPK,   DAP and MAP  Fertilizers and  direct application.  And it is ideal for the production of Phosphoric Acid after using special treatment. It also exhibits significantly low toxic components  As, Cd, Pb, Cr and Hg.

The area of Abu Tartour  Plateau is about 1200 km2, which has a reserve of  more than 5  billion tons of phosphate rock at all of Abu Tartour Plateau.

Full analysis sheets are attached for all grades.

Red Sea Mines

The Red Sea Mines stretches along the coast of the Red Sea West wards between two major cities Safaga and Qussier. The phosphate extracted  from  Red Sea mines is of grades ranging from 25-32% P2O5 and can reach in some parts of the mine to 33% Those grades makes Red Sea Mines  ideal for the production of Phosphoric and all types of fertilizers.
