The Sukhaybarat Gold Mine is located 550km northwest of Riyadh and 250km northwest of Mahd Ad Dahab in the Nuqrah-As Safra area. This remote region is the center of historical Gold and Copper workings, which were discovered in the 1930's.
The Sukhaybarat is just one of a number of Gold occurrences in this area, where the precious metal is found in both diorite and sedimentary formations. Modern development of the deposit began in 1986 with a feasibility study instigated by the Saudi Company for Precious Metals (SCPM), a joint venture between Petromin and the Swedish Mining Company, Boliden.
In 1991, this partnership began open pit mining of the reserves.
