Dolomite Industries

  • Dolomite, as a mineral, has very few uses. However, dolostone has an enormous number of uses because it occurs in deposits that are large enough to mine. 
  • The most common use for dolostone is in the construction industry. It is crushed and sized for use as a road base material, an aggregate in concrete and asphalt, railroad ballast, rip-rap or fill. It is also calcined in the production of cement and cut into blocks of specific size known as "dimension stone".
  • Dolomite's reaction with acid also makes it useful. It is used for acid neutralization in the chemical industry, in stream restoration projects and as a soil conditioner.
  • Dolomite is used as a source of magnesia (MgO), a feed additive for livestock, a sintering agent and flux in metal processing and as an ingredient in the production of glass, bricks and ceramics. 
  • Dolomite serves as the host rock for many  Lead, Zinc and Copper deposits. These deposits form when hot, acidic hydrothermal solutions move upward from depth through a fracture system that encounters a dolomitic rock unit. These solutions react with the dolomite which causes a drop in pH that triggers the precipitation of metals from solution. 
  • Where Calcite Limestone is uncommon or too costly, dolomite is sometimes used in its place as a flux for the smelting of iron and steel. Large quantities of processed dolomite are used in the production of float glass.
  • Dolomite also serves as an oil and gas reservoir rock. During the conversion of calcite to dolomite a volume reduction occurs. This can produce pore spaces in the rock that can be filled with oil or natural gas that migrate in as they are released from other rock units. This makes the dolomite a reservoir rock and a target of oil and gas drilling.
