2020-2-8  The study area is located in Ebonyi state, southeastern Nigeria, it is known for its large deposit of limestone [10]. Odukwe [11] stated that the deposit which appears to be one of the largest and most economically viable limestone resource bases of the country was found within the Turonian-Eze Aku Formation and contains over 174 million

limestone Characteristics, Formation, Texture, Uses

2021-2-11  Limestone has two origins: (1) biogenic precipitation from seawater, the primary agents being lime-secreting organisms and foraminifera; and (2) mechanical transport and deposition of preexisting limestones, forming clastic deposits. Travertine, tufa, caliche, chalk, sparite, and micrite are all varieties of limestone. Limestone
