Solid Mineral Resources of ENUGU State: A Review

Onyeabor Chinenye Florence

Enugu state, southeastern Nigeria is endowed with many natural resources which include coal, oil shale, gas, glass sands, ironstone, clay minerals, limestone, gypsum and alum. They occur in various formations of the state which includes Enugu Shale, Mamu Formation, Ajali Formation, Nsukka Formation and Imo shale. The minerals presently under exploitation are clay, sand, ironstone with others being under exploited or found in an uneconomic reserve. Mining of coal ceased since the 1990s hence reducing drastically the economic hub of the state. The return to coal exploitation and other solid minerals will enhance the economic output of the state.

Keywords: Glass sands, coal, ironstone, limestone, mineral
