The Egyptian desert is pocked all over with a variety of ring structures, large and small.
I'm pretty sure the case can be made that Kamil (coordinates: 22.018339°, 26.087715°) had an electric origin -
it seems apparent that it is a Rim-crater on a larger, fainter ring (and there's more further out that I haven't initially marked). Take a look:

If you zoom out a bit, you'll see that Kamil is right smack in the middle of a larger set of EDM scars and rings, including a few Anode/Cathode pairs.

Actually, I'm surprised it took someone as long as it did to find Kamil. I've been studying this area for a few years (both for EU and for Archeology reasons), and as I mentioned, there are a BUNCH of ring structures all over the place.
Take for instance the following items, and I sincerely hope I'm not blowing my chance at fame and fortune by pointing these out, because I have no idea - at all - whether these have been officially discovered - provided they're real and not just products of my fevered imagination - but I'm pretty sure they're not in the various "impact databases" available online...
Triple Ring Structure:
Main Body: 25.017845°, 29.787525°
Primary Rim Crater: 25.017115°, 29.787729°
Secondary Rim Crater: 25.017912°, 29.786908°
This whole thing is within a larger concentric ring roughly 400 ft in diameter, and arguably all of this is a Rim structure (on the NorthEast edge) on a lip of a 20-mile wide fainter ring.
Triple Ring Structure Faint:
Main Body: 22.297611°, 29.774166°
Primary Rim Crater: 22.299152°, 29.772676°
Secondary Rim Crater: 22.295762°, 29.772914°

On further reflection, I guess I'm not all that surprised after all that Kamil wasn't found earlier. People tend to think of the desert as "timeless", and I guess some of it is, but believe it or not, much of Egypt has changed within the last 100 years or so (or less). I was studying a bunch of ruins that were way too far South of Kharga/Khysis/Baris to be considered part of that area, and could not find a single reference anywhere (via Google or other means) that gave a clue to what was in these areas. By and large that is still true (even of the areas around known named wells and springs), however I did come across a WWII US Army map that showed large areas as being under cultivation which are now just desert - including areas that contain the "lost cities" I've been looking at.
So - just in case you're interested, although I know this part of my post is off topic (sorry!), here's a quick and very abridged coordinates list of some of the ruins I've been studying. I'll make an attempt to relate the first two to EU, but you'll have to just pardon the rest...
22.290433°, 29.778475° - Multi-concentric-ring-oasis
24.579705°, 30.713933° - The hill on which the Fortress of Tall Dūsh, Al Wadi al Jadid, is built is a multiple concentric ring structure that's been tilted so half of it is underground.
Just Ruins and Interesting Stuff
24.509818°, 30.703977° - I finally found out that this is a well.
Sometimes I feel like a tiger’s got my leg...
