HC Deb 08 July 1952 vol 503 cc81-2W
95. Mr. J. MacLeod

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what information his Department has regarding the quantity and quality of dolomite in the Kishorn area of Ross-shire.

Mr. Molson

An examination of deposits of dolomite near Kishorn, in Ross-shire, was carried out by the Geological Survey of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research in 1949 in collaboration with Messrs. Colvilles of Glasgow. Selected areas were examined in detail and bulk samples were taken for analysis. The results indicated that there is at least 15,000,000 tons of good quality dolomite reasonably accessible and almost unlimited resources of lower grade material.
