Graymont Completes Acquisition of Limestone Quarry in Perak, Malaysia

Graymont Ltd of Richmond, BC has announced the completion of the acquisition of a limestone quarry located in Perak, Malaysia from subsidiaries of NSL Chemicals Ltd. The quarry commenced production in the 1990s and is located in an area renowned for high quality limestone.

John Lim, Graymont Operations Director/Southeast Asia, stated, “The acquisition reinforces Graymont’s commitment to Perak and to growing our core business in Malaysia. As a socially responsible operator, Graymont looks forward to working with the local community and continuing our positive contribution to the region.”

In Canada, Graymont’s proposed lime plant and quarry operation planned for Giscome, BC remained on hold through 2021. However, the company has obtained an extension for the Environmental Certificate for the project until December, 2026. Collaborative meetings were held with the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation as part of the process. As things stand, Graymont retains all the necessary environmental and mine permits as well as approval for the rezoning of the proposed plant site.

Graymont also continued work in 2021 on a proposed state-of-the-art lime production facility adjacent to its high-grade limestone deposit in Rexton, MI.
