Fderîck or F'dérick (Arabic: افديرك) is a town in the north of Mauritania in the Tiris Zemmour Region, near the border with the Western Sahara. Situated in a remote area of the Sahara desert, on the west side of the Kediet Ijill, Fderîck was constructed in the late 1950s around the former French Fort Gouraud to exploit the area's iron deposits. The iron is transported by the Mauritania Railway to the port at Nouadhibou.
Zouerat lies 30 km east of Fderîck.
