This data release includes electron microprobe and 40Ar/39Ar collected at the U.S. Geological Survey for samples from the Sukari gold deposit in the Eastern Desert of Egypt. Rock samples were collected by Basem Zoheir--Benha University/University of Kiel. Muscovite from a polished thick section of sericitized wall rock was analyzed by electron probe microanalysis at the U.S. Geological Survey, Reston Electron Microbeam Laboratory. An aliquot of muscovite from this sample was microsampled from the thick section and analyzed by argon geochronology at the U.S. Geological Survey Bascom ARgon Dating (BARD) Laboratory in Reston, Virginia. The 40Ar/39Ar data constrain the timing of gold mineralization in the Sukari gold deposit.
