Mineral resource potential
 
Mineral resource potential:
   Metallic mineral resources are lacking in Kopetdagh range. Minor metallic ores are of sedimentary origin. Construction rocks material is very abundant in these ranges. Cement raw material is another mineral resource of this zone.
   Recent studies revealed possible oil and gas potential resources in Gorgan plain and margins of south Caspian.
   Alborz mountain range, thanks to magmatic activities had a suitable geological framework for metallic ore deposit formation. Lead-zinc and fluorite are examples of such potentials.
   Followings are some of the mineral resources of this province:
  
   Coal
   Coal resource of southeast Minoodasht is one of the resources already studied by East Alborz Coal Company. This coal is a weak coaking coal. The exploration of this coal deposit is planned. It is estimated that exploitation of these reserves with create a 1000 employment in this province.
  
   Lumashells
   Lumashells of Gonbad-e-Ghaboos has an aerial extent of 200-250 km2 and thickness of 15 meters. There are actually two active mines in this area and many other exploration licenses have been issued for local miners some of which are doing detailed explorations. It is anticipated that if full exploitation capacities of these lumashells are benefited will create ninety employments.
  
  
   Copper
   Copper is discovered in Khoshyelaq area. The exploration has already been started.
   Some other mineral resource indications are reported from different parts of this province.
   Attached tables represent some of these indications for which special exploration studies are planned.
