“There are certain kinds of rocks that contain different concentrations of gold in them,” Assabri stated.
Geochemical indicators show that the concentration of gold within rocks in these locations in significant, with between one and 18 grams per ton of rock.
“Such concentrations increase in certain locations in Sana’a, Haja and Jouf provinces,” he stated. Assabri called on companies to start investing in these locations.
