1. INTRODUCTION
The Federal Government of Nigeria has approved the development of salt deposits in Ebonyi State and the Nigeria brine belt situated in the Benue Trough.

2. BACKGROUND
A key factor in agricultural productivity is yield improvement, and one way of achieving this is using cheap and readily available fertilizers. The widespread occurrence and small-scale production of limestone in Nigeria indicate the potential for development and commercializing limestone granules to meet the demand and supply gaps and boost agricultural production.

3. OVERVIEW OF THE SOLID MINERALS DEVELOPMENT FUND
The solid Minerals Development Fund (“SMDF” or the “Fund”) is a Government-owned Fund established to drive investments in Nigeria’s mining sector. The Fund was established in 2007 by the Federal Government of Nigeria through the 2007 Minerals and Mining Act. SMDF is a unique government funding vehicle focused on driving critical interventions that maximize the recovery and impact of capital deployed. The mandates of the Fund include the development of physical and human capacity in the Nigerian mining sector, funding for geoscientific data gathering storage, and retrieval to meet the needs of the private sector-led mining industry, equipping the mining institutions to enable them to perform their statutory functions, funding for the extension services to small scale and artisanal mining operators and provision of mining-related infrastructure in mines land
