Geology and Mineralization:

Agbado-Okudu iron ore deposit occurs as a metasedimentary iron formation within the Igarra-Kabba-Jakura complex in association with gneisses, amphibolites, pegmatites and quartzite.

The ores occur as massive, laminated and brecciated.

Exploration:

  • Detailed exploration by National Steel Raw Materials Exploration Agency is still ongoing.
  • Five (5) additional core boreholes of 80-380m to be drilled and more samples analysed for sufficient geosciences data for reserve estimation.
  • Geological Maps (1:5000), Cross Sections and logs produced.

Location:

Agado-Okudu deposit is located about 16km north east of Obajana Cement Factory in Agbado-Okudu, Lokoja LGA, yogi State and lies between latitudes 7’25’29 and 8’00’23’N and longitudes 6’28’12 and 6’28’23E.

Infrastructure:

  • Access to site from Lokoja, capital of Kogi State
  • 170km from Lokoja to Abuja International Airport
  • Dredging of River Niger from Lokoja to the coast will ease transportation
