BOS Calcitic Lime is a mineral mined on the West Coast near Jakobsbaai.
The following processes are followed during manufacturing of the BOS Calcitic Lime:
1. Stripping of natural topsoil and preserving the topsoil in stockpiles for later rehabilitation of the mining area.
2. Drilling & blasting of in-situ calcrete material.
3. Primary crushing of blasted aggregate/rock to a 100mm max size.
4. Secondary crushing & screening of aggregate to a minus 4mm max size, which is the final product (BOS Kalsiet).
No chemicals are being added during the abovementioned manufacturing process. The final product (BOS Kalsiet) is therefore manufactured from a totally natural product without any addition of any chemicals.
BOS Calcite is used for agricultural purposes to neutralize the soil of acids. The BOS Calcite is a fine and soft product that makes the spreading of the product better and ensures a quicker acid neutralizing process.
