Characterization of Mfamosing limestone (Calabar Flank ...

2016-9-28  In Nigeria, there are abundant limestone deposits within the Calabar Flank of South-Eastern Nigeria, Ewekoro Formation of South- Western Nigeria and Imo Formation of Eastern Nigeria, which serve as sources of calcium carbonate (Badmus and Olatinsu, 2009). Calcium carbonate is synthetically processed from naturally occurring high grade limestone. The precipitated calcium carbonate has brilliant white crystals and can be supplied in different bulk densities from 0.28 g/cm3 – 0.90 g/cm3, depending on the requirement of end users. The calcium carbonate suitable for primary aluminium production must be free from inclusions such as iron (III) oxide (Fe2O3), silicon (IV) oxide (SiO2) and sulphate. Moreover, the calcium carbonate

PALEOENVIRONMENT AND AGE OF THE MFAMOSING

2013-7-9  The formation under study is the Mfamosing Limestone (Petters,1982) near Calabar, South Eastern Nigeria. This carbonate platform is located within the Calabar Flank (Murat 1972) and represents the thickest carbonate body in Nigeria (Reijers and Petters, 1987) (Fig. 1 and 2).It is about 50m thick at outcrop (type section) and 450m thick in thesubsurface on the Ituk high (Reijers and Petters,1987).
