Self imposed exile
Not a geologist but interested in what natural resources Somalia's geology could potentially offer.
Cratons are the most stablest and oldest part of continental crusts.
These cratons contain some of the richest deposits of natural resources on earth.
Just compare the above map to a similar map with locations of known mineral deposits.
Has there been any studies done on the lithosphere Somalia's on?
The older the land we're on, the richer it's deposits are.
If we don't even have Iron ore, we're screwed.
The nearest craton to us is a deformed shield in Ethiopia/Eritrea and one in Tanzania.
