Abstract: The main result of this paper is the "calculation" of the Borel equivariant cohomology ring $ {H^{\ast} }(EG \times_G\,X,{\mathbf{Z}}/p{\mathbf{Z}})$ localized at one of its minimal prime ideals. In case $ X$ is a point, the work of Quillen shows that the minimal primes $ {\mathfrak{P}_A}$ are parameterized by the maximal elementary abelian $ p$-subgroups $ A$ of $ G$ and the result is

$\displaystyle {H^{\ast} }{(BG,{\mathbf{Z}}/p{\mathbf{Z}})_{{\mathfrak{P}_A}}} \... ...{H^{\ast} }(B{C_G}(A),{\mathbf{Z}}/p{\mathbf{Z}})_{{\mathfrak{P}_A}}^{{W_G}(A)}$

. Here, $ {C_G}(A)$ is the centralizer of $ A$ in $ G$, and $ {W_G}(A) = {N_G}(A)/{C_G}(A)$, where $ {N_G}(A)$ is the normalizer of $ A$ in $ G$. An example is included.
