Abstract


An electrical survey was carried out in the TSELFAT zone (SIDI KACEM - MOROCCO). The objective of the prospection was to trace the top of sandy limestone and limestone formations from the Miocene age. These materials could be used as raw material for cement manufacture if they were present in sufficient quantities. The results of the geophysical soundings show the succession of layers with resistivity ranging from 50 to 1300 Ω.m and thickness from 0.5 to 80 m. Considering the geological context, the sandy limestone and limestone layers at the study site are very interesting because they can establish a reserve of raw material.

Author Keywords: Tselfat, raw material, electrical geophysics, sandy limestone and limestone, Miocene, reserve.
