Name of Mineral   - Limestone

District - Raipur

Limestone and Dolomite are the carbonate rocks that are mainly used for cement manufacture and metallurgical purposes with other allied uses of calcinations, flux, refractory bricks, dimension stones etc. based on the grade. These sedimentary rock are precipitated in identical environment to form widespread and continuous deposits. Limestone comprises of high calcium carbonate, while Dolomite is a double carbonate with higher concentrations of magnesium carbonate (>19% MgO) and calcium carbonate (20~35% CaO). Limestone and dolomite deposits are known in the State located in Raigarh, Janjgir-Champa, Kabirdham, Bilaspur, Raipur, Durg, Rajnandgaon districts forming part of Chhattisgarh basin and in Jagdalpur district within Indravati basin and in Dantewara district in Sukma basin.

Total estimated deposits of all grades of limestone are of the tune of about 9038 million tones and estimated reserves of dolomite are of the tune of 847 million tones as per Indian Bureau of Mines (IBM; Mineral Year Book, 2006) publication.

Directorate of Geology and Mining, Chhattisgarh in engaged for prospecting of limestone for last many years. Subsequently a large number of suitable sites for establishment of cement plant of various magnitudes have been identified in the state. A list of such sites with their present status is as given under.

A large number of PL and ML of Limestone have been granted in favour of tens of companies mainly for the production of Portland cement. These are also being mined for other industrial purposes.
