Chemical and mineralogical characterisation of carbonate deposits in Norway

Norway's carbonate mining is significant, with 11 calcite carbonate and 3 dolomite mines in production. A large portion of the production provides raw materials for a variety of domestic downstream industries; altogether a considerable value creation. The overall purpose of this report is to contribute to a process which may result in new industrial developments. Of particular focus has been the identification of calcite carbonate deposits with a potential for production of high-whiteness products.
