    APA-Khartoum (Sudan)

    Sudan has signed a contract with Russian firms for the exploration of gold in the east of the country, a senior official of the Ministry of Metals in Khartoum tells APA on Tuesday.

    The ministry had signed an agreement with a number of unnamed Russian companies to explore for gold and other minerals in the Red Sea State of eastern Sudan.


    Sudanese Geological Research Director, Mohammed Abu Fatima Abdullah, told APA that Sudan has been confirmed to harbor enormous mineral wealth, thanks to geological surveys.


    “The area chosen by Russian companies is very rich in minerals, and these companies chose it after using modern Russian technologies” he said.


    The famous Red Sea Range is located in the region where the companies will operate.
