MININGS / QUARRIES

Pits

There are four pits in Mari, which operate under the supervision of Moni and Vassilikos cement companies.

Two of the pits are located on the southeast of the community, at the Kolymbos area. Argil is excavated from these pits as it is the feedstock for cement production.

The other two pits are located in the southeast, at the Mandra tou Michaeli area and south of the community, at Maraggadeas area accordingly. Argil is excavated from the first and limestone from the latter. Both argil and limestone are the basic ingredients for cement production.

It must be noted that cement companies financially contribute to the construction of many projects in the community. “Vassilikos” company funded the opening of a bore for water, solving the irrigation problem of the community. “Moni” Cement Company funded many road works.

Undoubtedly, both cement companies contribute financially to the economic growth of the area. Many inhabitants of Mari and its surrounding communities work for these two companies.
