MARBLE FROM THE ORE MOUNTAINS

GEOMIN - ERZGEBIRGISCHE KALKWERKE GMBH

GEOMIN - Erzgebirgische Kalkwerke GmbH exploits the largest deposits of high-crystalline white marble currently mined in Germany.

The more than 500-year history of marble mining at our locations in Lengefeld, Hermsdorf und Hammerunterwiesenthal are continued by GEOMIN for almost 20 years with modern technology.

The marble produced by room and pillar mining shows special properties like high hardness and compressive strength, high frost and weathering resistance, pigment poorness, and low residual porosity, which are the base for high-quality products. Thereby GEOMIN is the most important supplier of local white crystalline carbonate products.

The more than 500 million years old natural resource is used in construction chemistry, plastics, concrete and plaster industry as well as for the production of paint and varnish.
