Brazilian investors have expressed and interesting exploring large limestone deposits in at least four districts of Mozambique’s Nampula province, said the provincial inspector and spokesman for the Mining Resources and energy Directorate, Fila Lazaro. He added that they planned to use limestone to produce clinker and to correct acid soil.
