From the Kareem Formation subsurface section of Shagar-1 borehole, southwest Gulf of Suez, the dinoflagellate cyst content has been recovered. Key Middle Miocene dinocysts are calibrated with contemporaneous dino-events available from the Egyptian Nile Delta area and worldwide as well. The inferred Middle Miocene age confirms that based on planktonic foraminifers in the same studied section. During the deposition of Kareem anhydrites (base, Rahmi Member) and clastics (top, Shagar Member) the site of deposition changed from lagoonal to open (shallow) marine respectively.
