Located in the western Anti-Atlas Mts.
Gold mine owned by Akka Gold Mining Co. (AGM).
Akka Mine refers to the company and not the mine's name. Also, Akka is a town in neighbouring Tata Province, east of the Iouriren mine. Approximately equidistant to the west within Tiznit Province, is the town of Tafraout. It would probably be wiser to use Tafraout as a "city/town" designation. Google Maps shows a closer settlement called Inlioua to the SW of the mine, but this may be too small to be of use.
NOTE: "Iourirne" is a mis-nomer.
