Mount Richard-Molard, also known as Mount Nimba, is a mountain along the border of Ivory Coast and Guinea in West Africa. The highest peak for both countries and the Nimba Range is at 1,752 m (5,748 ft). The mountain is a part of the Guinea Highlands, which straddles the borders between the two countries and Liberia. The nearest major settlements are the town Yekepa in Liberia and the towns of Bossou and N'Zoo in Guinea.[1]


The mountain is named after the French geographer Jacques Richard-Molard, who died in an accident at the mountain site in 1951.[2] Before that it was called Mount Nouon.[3]


The mountain is rich in iron ore and cobalt. The mix of iron rich quartzite sheets, schists and granite gneiss have characterised the geological pedogenesis.[citation needed]


Mount Richard-Molard lies within the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, which currently covers 17,540 hectares and straddles the borders of Guinea and Ivory Coast.[citation needed][4]
