Muscat: The Public Authority for Mining has prohibited the export of raw marble until further notice.

A statement issued online, on Sunday, by the Authority said, “It is prohibited to export raw marble, in the form of blocks, cubes, or slabs with thickness exceeding three centimeters, a decision is issued in this regard.”

“As an exception to this ban, with the written consent of the CEO of the Public Mining Authority, it is permitted to allow the export of a number of cubes of marble ore, or slabs of more than three centimeters, if it is proven to the Authority that the request to export them is for the purpose of providing for construction projects of a special nature that require different measurements of the marble ore and can not be processed in the local factories within the Sultanate.”
