The existing mining companies, such as limestone, that are exporting raw minerals will be given a grace period to set up industries to add value, undersecretary at the ministry, Eng. Ahmed bin Hassan Al Dheeb, told the daily. "As per the new regulation, we are trying to stop exporting minerals. The new regulation stipulates that the companies setting up mineral units in the country have to add value to the raw mineral available in the country," he said.
