Geological Characterization of Azara Barite Mineralization ...

The barite deposit in Azara occurs as hydrothermal veins within the Cretaceous Keana sandstone of the Middle Benue Trough. The defunct Nigeria Mining Corporation identified eighteen hydrothermal veins (Fatoye et al., 2014). The mineralized veins strike generally in the NE-SW, NW-SE and E-W directions (Chaanda et al., 2010). Azara barites deposit is the best known deposit of barites in Nigeria.
