Kučevo quarryKučevo quarry

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate with the occasional presence of magnesium. Most limestone is biochemical in origin meaning the calcium carbonate in the stone originated from shelled oceanic creatures. Limestone can also be chemical in origin as is the case of Travertine.

"DUKAT" Ltd has exclusive right to purchase limestone from the Kučevo quarry which is located in northeastern Serbia 150 km from Belgrade.

Limestone from this quarry has high percentage of calcium carbonate (more than 98%) and high white index compared to magnesium oxide- MgO.

First step in quarrying is to gain access to the limestone deposit. This is achieved by using heavy equipment and small explosive charges.
