Symbol Mining has 60% interests in two base metals projects which are located in the Benue Trough of northeastern Nigeria.
- The Imperial Project
- The Tawny Project
The Benue Trough is a sedimentary basin that extends from the Gulf of Guinea in the southwest to the Chad Basin in the northwest for approximately 800km in length and 150km in width.
Lead sulphide and zinc sulphide (with varying amounts of silver and barite) mineralisation in the Benue Trough has been of economic interest for more than a century. Mineralisation is located along a northeast trending belt extending approximately 800km within the Benue Trough, a thick sequence of slightly deformed and weakly metamorphosed sedimentary Cretaceous sequences up to 5km thick.
