Limestone Value-added Production

There are enormous deposits of high quality limestone (98% CaCO3 high purity grade) in Jamaica, and this abundant and versatile mineral has significant economic value. The country has the capacity to become a key international supplier of this in-demand product, which has numerous applications for food processing, manufacturing and the development of pharmaceutical and industrial items.

Marble

Jamaica possesses true marble deposits of commercial significance, which can be used in the dimension stone industry. Jamaican marbles are characterised by vibrant colours, unique grains and outstanding beauty that make them ideal for luxurious and high-end applications.

Marble can be extracted as properly dimensioned and shaped blocks, but smaller blocks and irregular shaped pieces can also be obtained and utilized. Marble deposits with the highest economic potential can be found in Red Ground, Point Hill and Hellshire, St. Catherine; Chepstowe and Berwick Spring in Portland; Rodons Store in Clarendon; Cuckold Point in Manchester; Mavis Bank in St. Andrew; Garbrand Hall and Serge Island in St. Thomas. The potential exists for discovery of additional deposits across the island.
