Cuban Zeolite is among the best of the world
The export of over 550 tons of the mineral zeolite to Canada, Brazil, Italy and Spain in March shows the growing interest for the Cuban mineral in Europe and The Americas.
The director of the stone processing plant from Tasajera in central Villa Clara province, Diógenes Carballo, told AIN that the contracts signed by the industry indicate considerable increases in sales abroad, which could become the highest over the last ten years.
The workers at the Central Geo-mining Enterprise will complete some 275 tons in April destined for the international market, which is part of their commitment to supply some 4,500 tons this year to countries in the Old Continent and Canada.
According to Carballo, commitments to national clients were fulfilled during the first trimester, as well as the amount planned for the Cuban joint venture Agrisel, which commercializes this export item enriched with other chemical elements to Spain.
The Cuban zeolite is among the best in the world, and there are abundant reserves and plants for their exploitation in Villa Clara, Holguín and Santiago de Cuba provinces.
The Tasajera-Piojillo deposit, on the center of the archipelago, has only prospected 0.8 of its 25 kilometers, which guarantees its present and future use.
