RAK Rock strives to continuously improve its service to clients so we are fortunate to be ideally situated in an area rich with reserves of high-value mineral rock can be found in the region. There are two types of mineral rock in the region: An abundance of limestone can be found in the northern mountains of the Emirate while the south boasts igneous rock. Our limestone boasts a competitive advantage in terms of its chemical composition: it contains a high percentage of calcium oxide and a low percentage of silica. That combination ensures our limestone is extremely useful as a flux agent in the steel industry. To put that in context, despite having vast reserves of its own limestone, India imports around 20% of its limestone from the UAE because of our superior chemical make-up. Separately, the igneous rock found in the Emirate is a high-quality, abrasive rock type typically used for road construction.
Our products have been used in some of the most high-profile global construction projects and developments such as the development of the Burj Khalifa (UAE), Dubai Mall (UAE) and the Boubean Sea Port (Kuwait).
