Minette Formation

Minette formation took place millions of years ago. There are a variety of Minette Uses and the Minette Reserves are found in many countries around the world. The rocks in the earth’s crust continuously undergo changes in their composition which leads to formation of other rocks. Each rock has a unique formation process. Formation of Minette is explained below:

  • Minette formation takes place deep beneath the Earth’s surface at around 150 to 450 kms, and are erupted rapidly and violently.
