The area in the Central Eastern Desert at the limestone hogback of Gebel Duwi near Wadi Sodmein is currently under investigation in the Collaborative Research Centre 806 “Our Way to Europe”, (University of Cologne) in collaboration with the Egyptian Mineral Resources Authority (EMRA). In a joint fieldtrip in 2017 from CRC 806 and EMRA at Wadi Sodmein, a new cave site at Gebel Duwi is thereby firstly investigated with geoscientific methods. The cave has an approximately site of at least 120m and has heights up to 12-15m. A first mapping of the cave was done by the documentation of the main features of the size measurements of the caves size and extent.
