Cuba evaluates potential of mining

IANSBy Indo Asian News Service | IANS

Havana, Dec 3 (IANS) A study to assess Cuba's mining resource potential

for a national development strategy was presented at a national workshop

that ended here Saturday, Cuban National Information Agency reported Sunday.

Conducted by Cuban National Institute of Geology and Palaeontology

(IGP), the study covers reserves across the country and serves as an

indispensable tool for government decisions, a Xinhua report said.

IGP Director Enrique Castellanos said the study would contribute to the

reduction of fuel consumption and execution time and bring mineral

sources closer to both producers and consumers.

It would also help save cement by increasing the production of other

binders such as pozzolan, lime and plaster, Castellanos told the

workshop on how to increase housing resilience in areas vulnerable to

natural, hydrometeorological or geological events.

He also presented a map and a database of rocks and industrial mineral

reservoirs in Cuba.
