PRELIMINARY REPORT ON THE GEOLOGY OF THE DOLOMITIC LIMESTONE IN CEBU, PHILIPPINES

RUPERTO B. JAGOLINO

 

 

 

ABSTRACT

 

The dolomitic limestone in Cebu occurs as irregular masses in the Carcar Limestone, the youngest Tertiary formation in the province. Preliminary studies tend to show that the dolomitic limestone is of the replacement type, probably almost contemporaneous with minor leaching. Its distribution and occurrence in areas fringing the coastline suggests that sea water has something to do with dolomitization.
