An Assessment of the Major Elemental Composition and

The Odukpani limestone is a more enriched limestone deposits with less concentration of harmful elements. Thus all wastes and particulate emissions from industries mining the limestones (Yandev deposit in particular) should be closely monitored to reduce their adverse effects on health and the environment.

Where is limestone found in Nigeria Legit.ng

Many of them, including limestone, are believed to be very important. Before we talk about where was limestone first found in Nigeria and where it can be found today, we should understand what this stone is. Limestone is a sort of sedimentary rocks that are formed by marine organism skeletal parts, such as forams, corals, etc.

Chemical Analysis of Itobe Limestone Deposit for Potential

The result showed that an appreciable amount of the marble deposit, with CaO in the range of 32.95% to 50.05% and Silica ranging from 1.40% to 7.20%. From these chemical analyses, Itobe limestone showed a great potential in cement production to augment cement availability for building and civil engineering construction in Nigeria.

Uses of limestone in Nigeria Legit.ng

The biggest and purest limestone deposits can be found around the Middle and Southwest belt regions of Nigeria. It is estimated that in the Southwest region alone, there are 31 million metric tonnes of limestone. For this reason, Nigeria is considered to have the richest limestone deposits in West Africa.

The average Ca/Si ratio of the Yandev deposit is 4.32 while that of Odukpani deposit is 8.64. The observed low Ca/Si ratio in Yandev Limestone was attributed to the comparatively high Si content of the limestones. Thus the Odukpani limestone deposit appears to be more friendly to health and the environment.
