Systematic inventory of the righteousness of the Sahara. After petroleum and natural gas, deposits of platinum, nickel, copper and diamonds were discovered in the Sahara. Teams of topographers and geologists, with significant resources, are currently drawing up an OEstematic inventory of the riches of the great desert which they criss-cross in all directions.
