En effet, la mine de Bleida, a son commencement, avait realise la route entre la mine de Bou azzer et Bleida soit une soixantaine de kilometres.
Par ailleurs, il est loisible de souligner que la mine Bou azzer emploie 1700 personnes dont plus de 90% emanent de la region et consent une strategie de developpement, conformement a la politique generale de Managem.
Let's begin with the newly discovered occurrence of dyscrasite, in spiky, metallic tin-white crystals enclosed in white calcite, from the Bouismas mine, Bou Azzer
Morocco also hosts cobalt at the Bou Azzer
deposit, which is the world's only primary cobalt deposit.
Cie de Tifnout-Tiranimine (CTT) operates the world's only primary cobalt mine, Bou Azzer, with an output in 1992 of 4,253 t of concentrate (grading in excess of 10% Co).
Cie Miniere de Bou Azzer (CMBA) was established last year to examine the feasibility of adding further value to CTT's cobalt concentrate.
Reminex, as the primary contractor, was very active in bringing the Guemassa mine on stream last year as well as working on added value studies for Bou Azzer's cobalt and Bleida's cemented copper.
Bou Azzer has produced the world's finest specimens of erythrite, roselite, roselite-beta, talmessite, wendwilsonite, skutterudite and gersdorffite.
Bou Azzer might be translated as "where the fig tree stands." In a little gorge to the left of the road out of Tazenahkt a tiny garden lies hidden, not far from a spring inhabited by many frogs--a rare thing in the barren Anti-Atlas Mountains.
The Bou Azzer mining district encompasses many distinct mines, of which the most famous--from west to east--are Bou Azzer proper, Aghbar (Arhbar), (12) Ightem (Irhtem), Tamdrost and Ait Ahmane.
Ernesto Ossolo had visited the classic mines of Bou Azzer
and brought back fine nickeline and gersdorffite crystals.
If you can remember the brief influx in the market, about 14 years ago, of electrically bright and lustrous, deep red to magenta erythrite from Bou Azzer
, Morocco, you are also aware that these vanished quickly, no more such world-class specimens having been found since 1986.
