SECTION V 
MINERAL PRODUCTS
CHAPTER 25
SALT; SULPHUR; EARTHS AND STONE; PLASTERING MATERIALS, LIME AND CEMENT
Note 1
Flotation is intended to separate the rich element of a mineral substance from the gangue by enabling it to collect at thesurface of the water in which it has been immersed, while the gangue deposits at the bottom.
2501 00 Salt (including table salt and denatured salt) and pure sodium chloride, whether or not in aqueoussolution or containing added anti-caking or free-flowing agents; sea water
2501 00 31 For chemical transformation (separation of Na from Cl) for the manufacture of other products
Provided the conditions laid down by the competent authorities are met, this subheading includes salt, whether or notdenatured, intended for the manufacture of hydrochloric acid, chlorine, calcium chloride, sodium nitrate, sodiumhypochlorite, sodium sulphates, sodium carbonates, sodium hydroxide, sodium chlorate, sodium perchlorate and metallicsodium.
2501 00 51 Denatured or for industrial uses (including refining) other than the preservation or preparation of foodstuffs forhuman or animal consumption
Provided the conditions laid down by the competent authorities are met, this subheading covers:1. denatured salt, whatever its intended use, excluding the denatured salt of subheading 2501 00 31;2. salt for refining; ‘refining’ in this context means only purification by those processes in which the salt is dissolved;3. salt for industrial uses other than chemical transformation, or the preservation or preparation of foodstuffs for human oranimal consumption. ‘Salt for industrial use’ means salt intended for factory use as raw material or as an intermediatematerial in an industrial manufacturing operation (for example, in metallurgy, in dyeing, in the leather and hides industry,in soap manufacture, in refrigeration and in the ceramics industry).Salt, other than denatured salt used for salting roads, falls within subheading 2501 00 99.
2501 00 91 Salt suitable for human consumption
Salt suitable for human consumption is undenatured salt suitable for direct domestic or industrial uses as a seasoning orpreserving agent for foodstuffs. It generally has a high degree of purity and is uniformly white.
2501 00 99 Other
This subheading includes undenatured salt used as a de-icing agent in winter and salt used as animal feed (e.g., salt-lick).
2503 00 Sulphur of all kinds, other than sublimed sulphur, precipitated sulphur and colloidal sulphur2503 00 10 Crude or unrefined sulphur
This subheading includes the varieties of sulphur mentioned in the HS Explanatory Notes to heading No 2503, firstparagraph, (1) to (4). These sulphurs are generally in the form of blocks, lumps or dust.

2503 00 90 Other
This subheading covers the varieties of sulphur mentioned in the HS Explanatory Notes on heading No 2503, firstparagraph, (5) to (7). These sulphurs are generally in the form of sticks or small cakes (refined sulphur) or powders (‘sievedsulphur’, ‘winnowed sulphur’, ‘atomized sulphur’).
2508 Other clays (not including expanded clays of heading No 6806), andalusite, kyanite and sillimanite,whether or not calcined; mullite; chamotte or dinas earths
2508 10 00 Bentonite
See the HS Explanatory Notes to heading No 2508, third paragraph, (1).Naturally occurring bentonites normally have a pH of between 6 and 9,5 (for a 5 % aqueous suspension and after standingfor 1 hour) and a sodium carbonate content of less than 2 %; their aggregate content of exchangeable sodium and calciumdoes not exceed 80 meq/100 g. There are two types: low-swelling calcium and high-swelling sodium (rate of swelling lessthan 7 ml/g or greater than 12 ml/g).Certain naturally occuring bentonites may have characteristics which differ from these values; where this is the case of several characteristics, the bentonite is generally considered to be activated.Activated bentonites generally fall within subheading 3802 90 00.
2511 Natural barium sulphate (barytes); natural barium carbonate (witherite), whether or not calcined, otherthan barium oxide of heading No 2816
2511 10 00 Natural barium sulphate (barytes)
Barytes contains variable amounts of iron oxide, aluminia, sodium carbonate and silica. Since the product in its white formis most sought after, it is crushed, screened to remove the coloured elements (mostly yellowish), pulverized and then puri-fied by levigation.
2511 20 00 Natural barium carbonate (witherite)
Witherite occurs in the form of rhomboid crystals or yellowish masses which are insoluble in water.
2513 Pumice stone; emery; natural corundum, natural garnet and other natural abrasives, whether or notheat-treated
2513 19 00 Other
This subheading includes pumice stone which is ground or pulverized.
2513 20 00 Emery, natural corundum, natural garnet and other natural abrasives
For the purposes of this subheading, other natural abrasives include the tripoli known as ‘rotten stone’, an ash grey productused as a mild abrasive or for polishing.
2516 Granite, porphyry, basalt, sandstone and other monumental or building stone, whether or not roughlytrimmed or merely cut, by sawing or otherwise, into blocks or slabs of a rectangular (including square)shape
When squared stones do not have a uniform thickness, classification according to thickness is to be made by reference to thegreatest thickness.
2516 11 00 Crude or roughly trimmed

2516 90 00 Other monumental or building stone
This subheading includes:1. hard rocks like porphyry, syenite, lava, basalt, gneiss, trachyte, diabase, diorite, phonolite, liparite, gabbro, labradoriteand peridotite;2. calcareous monumental or building stones not falling within heading No 2515, i.e., with an apparent specific gravity of less than 2,5, crude, roughly trimmed or merely cut, by sawing or otherwise, into blocks or slabs of a rectangular(including square) shape of any thickness;3. serpentine or ophite, crude, roughly trimmed or merely cut, by sawing or otherwise, into blocks or slabs of a rectangular(including square) shape of any thickness.
2518 Dolomite, whether or not calcined; dolomite roughly trimmed or merely cut, by sawing or otherwise,into blocks or slabs of a rectangular (including square) shape; agglomerated dolomite (including tarreddolomite)
2518 10 00 Dolomite not calcined
Dolomite is a natural double carbonate of calcium and magnesium. It remains classified in this subheading even when it hasbeen given a light heat-treatment which does not alter its chemical composition.This subheading covers dolomite, non calcined, crude, roughly trimmed (roughly squared) or merely cut, by sawing or by splitting, into blocks or slabs of a rectangular (including square) shape.
2518 20 00 Calcined dolomite
Calcined dolomite is a dolomite which has been subjected to a high temperature heat-treatment (about 1 500
o
C for dead-burned (sintered) dolomite and about 800
o
C for caustic burned dolomite which alters its chemical composition by drivingoff carbon dioxide.
2519 Natural magnesium carbonate (magnesite); fused magnesia; dead-burned (sintered) magnesia, whetheror not containing small quantities of other oxides added before sintering; other magnesium oxide,whether or not pure
2519 90 10 Magnesium oxide, other than calcined natural magnesium carbonate
This subheading includes:1. magnesium oxide obtained by calcination of either magnesium hydroxide or precipitated magnesium carbonate andused particularly in pharmacy; this substance is a white powder with a purity of not less than 98 %;2. magnesium oxide obtained by fusing previously calcined magnesite; magnesite is calcined at 1 400 to 1 800
o
C; themagnesia obtained is then fused in an electric arc at a temperature of 2 800 to 3 000
o
C, once cooled it produces acrystalline product consisting almost wholly of magnesium oxide (fused magnesia); this is extremely pure (at least 95 %)and consists of glass-like crystals;3. magnesium oxide derived from sea water; this is obtained by calcination of magnesium hydroxide precipitated from seawater: the product is usually 91 to 98 % pure and contains more boron as its characteristic impurity than does dead-burned (sintered) magnesia (about 100 ppm as against about 40 ppm).
2520 Gypsum; anhydrite; plasters (consisting of calcined gypsum or calcium sulphate) whether or notcoloured, with or without small quantities of accelerators or retarders
2520 20 10 Building
Building plaster is manufactured by subjecting crude gypsum (gypsum rock or other gypsum-bearing materials, e.g.,by-products of the chemical industry) to a special dressing and calcining process. Specific characteristics can be obtainedthrough the introduction of additives during the manufacturing process. These take the form of floating agents (i.e., sub-stances which affect the characteristics of the gypsum — e.g., its consistency or adhesive properties — in a particular way),and retarders or accelerators.Building plaster is used, for example, as stucco, for plastering walls and ceilings, in the manufacture of building panels orother construction elements, or for jointing tiles.
