The Sukari mine or Alsukari mine (Arabic: Al-Sukkari, Egyptian pronunciation: El-Sokkari) is a Gold Mine located in the Nubian Desert/Eastern Desert near the Red Sea in Egypt in the south-east of the country in the Red Sea Governorate, 30 km south of Marsa Alam. It is exploited jointly by the Egyptian Ministry of Mineral Resources and Centamin. It is Egypt’s first modern gold mine, an industry considered to have scope for expansion in the country. Egypt was known in the ancient world as being a source of gold, and one of the earliest available maps shows a gold mine at this location.
It is a combination of an open-pit mine and an underground mine, with estimated reserves of 15.4 million oz of gold. The site is supplied by a 30 km long pipeline bringing water from the Red Sea.
