Duke Geologists Describe Eastern North
Carolina's Untapped Mineral Wealth
Eastern North Carolina may have
considerable mineral wealth in the
form of limestone deposits and its
companion, marl, according to the
firi"-""! of Duke geologists.
Ir. i pai'C- read before the Amer
- Illume of Mining in New
York yesterday, Dr. E. W. Berry,
chairman of the geology department
; of Duke University, described the
! potentially valuable marl beds that
frequent this section of North
Marl, an earthy, crumbling de
posit made up of clay and calcium
raibonate may be burned to make
lime or may be used in its natuia'.
state as agricultural lime. Marl may
also be ground into commercial
fertilizer and recently has been
used in highway construction, air
strips, and "Marlcrete" brick.
Recent studies indicate th.-t th
commercial production of Portland
cement from the marl is feasible,
at least in the pilot plant stage. Be
fore being processed into cement
the marl must first be improved
by the addition of calcium carbo
nate and the reduction of the silica
Dr. Berry's report pointed out
that 35 of the 42 counties compris
ing the North Carolina Coasta!
Plain have some marl or marly
limestone deposits. These counties
include Duplin. Lenoir, Sampson,
Jones Wayne. Onslow and 29 other-,
Previous marl operations on a
fairly large scale date back to the
first World War. The Trent River
Marl Co. at that time took consid
erable marl out of the ground but
was handicapped by water and lack
of mechanization. This project has
since been abandoned.
At present the only commercial
exploitation of North Carolina marl
is at Belgrade in the New Bern
area. Here the Superior Stone Co.
of Raleigh operates under almost
ideal conditions and with modern
machinery. The Superior pits are
served by a railroad siding which
allows the crushed marl to be ship
ped out easily although some of 1
is also transported by truck.
Another pit in the Pollocksville
area is operated on a minor scale.
Here much of the work is done by
hand and there is no rail access to

In nis paper, Dr. Berry pointed
out that future operations in marl
are still in the realm of speculation.
Should the marl prove to be practi

built up to the point where other
pits operating with modern machin
