Egypt has a long
history in mining that goes back to the
pre dynastic times.
The old Egyptian could discover the importance of the minerals
and how to use it in order to help them in their daily life. So
they could discover Iron, Copper and other material. Also
precious minerals like gold and silver. The uncounted remains of
the old Egyptians can tell lots of stories about how they could
deal with the earth material and profit from it.
In the modern history and
after the enormous excavations, Egypt became one the countries which
consider to be very rich in its natural resources from gas,
oil, gold, Iron beside many other material such as
calcium carbonate, talc, feldspar and many other.
So we can frankly say
that Egypt is the Land of Treasures.
