Despite a rich history of gold exploration dating back to the Old Kingdom, Egypt has had little in the way of modern mining activity. In 2007, Aton Resources acquired the Abu Marawat Concession and has been advancing the development of a number of targets as the only public exploration company in Egypt. With a focus on discovering Africa’s next major gold mine, Aton’s team has been hard at work creating value for shareholder.
