Ambatoharanana Ambony (Ambatoharanana-Atsimo)


A zonated, granite LCT pegmatite, Beryll-Columbite subtype with 3 zones worked for columbite-tantalite and beryl. The pegmatite measured 250 X 40 m. Not the same as the pegmatite with the same name in the Andriamena commune.

The coordinates are not verified by a visit at the locality.
