Israel Strikes Gold in Arava

Download PDF for this date

Researchers from the Energy and Infrastructure Ministry’s geological survey have recently discovered unusually large concentrations of gold in the southern region of the Arava.

The concentrations were found during a survey and geochemical mapping of Israel, conducted with the support of the ministry’s Earth Sciences Research Administration.

The ministry underscored that it remains impossible at this time to determine whether the finding is economically significant.
