Mineral investment opportunities in the UAE (presentation) This presentation was given at the 2017 Mining Show in Dubai, UAE. The focus of the conference, and associated exhibition, was the mining sector in the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and South Asia. The delegates were from government ministries and departments, the mining industry and associated support companies, academia and private consultancies. The theme of the presentation was an assessment of the potential for the production and commercialisation of the mineral resources of the UAE. The potential impact is the development of the mineral resources furthering the economic diversification of the UAE economy. The potential mineral opportunities include: High-purity calcium carbonate (limestone) and dolomite; Dimension stone; Hard-rock resources (construction aggregate); Gypsum; Chromite; and Silica sand. Other minerals with little or no potential include: Asbestos, Barytes, Celestite, Clay, Copper, Feldspar, Magnesite, Manganese, Mica and Platinum Group Elements (PGEs).
