Limestone is discussed here primarily as a cement raw material, though some of the generalities can also be applied to other limestone uses.As used in this page, beneficiation is defined as the improving of limestone composition so as to produce an economically usable raw material. A limestone deposit is defined as a mass of limestone which can be recovered, by quarrying or mining, for sale or for use in a commercially profitable operation. The stone may require elaborate processing, or it may qualify with little or none. Obviously, the "commercially profitable" qualification may change as the economy changes. Potentially commercial deposits may be of much better quality than actually developed deposits, and yet may be denied development for various economic reasons.
