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.
