Carbonato de Calcio en México: Características geológicas, mineralógicas y aplicaciones
This paper is a compilation of information regarding calcium carbonate: a too much abundant mineral in Mexican territory, but whose characteristics, uses and alternative applications are unknown.
There are three interrelated aspects, which require applying a balanced treatment to better use: prospecting, cataloging their potential uses, and production.
As for prospecting, Mexico certainly has potential for geological prospecting carbonate reservoirs; but the main problem is to realize it correctly.
The complex geological history in Mexico has led to the evolution of different types of calcium mineral deposits, located mainly during the Cretaceous period dating back some 65 million years ago.
This text aims to provide an understanding of the types of rocks, features, content and applications based on the content of calcium carbonate.
