Belize - Mining

Clays, limestone, marble, and sand and gravel for construction were the mainstay of Belize's minerals industry; none was reportedly exported in 2001. The Belize, Sibun, and Monkey rivers, as well as North and South Stann creeks, were the sites of clay, limestone, and sand and gravel operations. Clay production amounted to 2.6 million tons in 2001; dolomite, 31,000 tons; limestone, 320,000 tons; sand and gravel, 360,000 tons; marl, 1.3 million tons; and gold, 6 kg, by stream panning.
