TRUST MARMAR QUARRY


The Egyptian land is rich in natural stone resources which are available in various colors, types, and qualities. Marble, limestone, alabaster, slate, basalt, and granite are found in Egypt having diverse features and qualities.
The marble and granite deposits are extracted from quarries which are located in various areas: the Red Sea coasts (38%), Suez (14%), Sinai (11%), Upper Egypt (9%), and the Nile Valley (2%).
The estimated number of quarries located all over Egypt is 500 quarries. The number of the quarries is almost geographically distributed as follows:

  • 300 marble and marbleized limestone quarries in South Galala
  • 100 granite quarries in Aswan and Red Sea
  • 50 marble and granite quarries in Sinai
  • 50 marble and marbleized limestone quarries in North Galala.

The quarries capacity is high in which they extract output which is equal to 5 million ton per year.
In Egypt, there is the True Marble which is found within the basement rocks. The True Marble is crystalline limestone that is characterized with diverse proportions of dolomite.
This kind of marble is available mainly in two places.
The first place is Wadi Al Miyah which is located in the Eastern Desert between Edfu and Marsa Alam. In this place, True Marble has different color variation mainly white, black, or grey. The second place is Wadi Al Alaqi that is in southeast of Aswan.

Trust Marmar’s main source of supply is its own quarries. This clearly distinguishes it from other companies and enables it to guarantee rapid supply of Natural Stone for large projects.
Trust Marmar owns two quarries of Galala marble which is extracted from a mountain called Galala located in Suez city, Egypt. It was named of the trade name of this mountain "Galala Marble".
Its colors are creamy and creamy white as its variations differ according to the quarry stones.

Quarry Production Process
Stone quarrying is a multistage process by which rock is extracted from the ground and cut into the required sizes to be used commercially or in homes.
At the Trust Marmar quarry engineers will profile the surface, then design the blasting process and plot the rock to be extracted. After blasting, secondary cutting will be done subsequently using hydraulic diggers and other equipment. The cutting can go up to three or four stages.
The cut rocks are transported along the process line on conveyor belts or down chutes.
These are then sent to the factories for further processing into the desired slabs or tiles Because of our blocks derive from the best and most productive quarries in Egypt; Trust Marmar ensures that each individual project will be completed with material sourced from the same quarry to ensure consistency in tonality.
Through our comprehensive supply management we have a regular flow of marble blocks in order to satisfy most new coming orders.
