Geology: 

The geological setting of the project area is similar to the Koton-Karfe and Agbaja iron ore deposit. The area lies within the Bida-Basin. It is a shallow trough filled with marine to floriated strata of Campanian- Maastrichtian age. The deposit occurs as sedimentary ores of Oolitic iron stones, consisting of Oolitic and Pisolitic iron stones extending from the Koton-Karfe ridges. The iron ore bearing steep slope plateau trends in a NE-SW direction with an average height of 263m above sea level.  

Exploration: 

  • Exploration carried out in an area of approx. 1km2
  • Twenty-five core-holes drilled to depths between 21 and 42m. 
  • The thickness of iron ore body range from 7.02m to 16.32m. 
  • Available Data include; Geological Maps, Contour Maps, Core-logs, Sections, Analytical Data and Reports. 

Location: 

It is located at Enegbaki Akpogu, Koton-Karfi LGA, Kogi State. About 9km east of Akpogu village along Abuja-Lokoja road. 

Infrastructure: 

  • Accessible by road.
