The potential industrial uses of Maastrictian-Paleocene carbonate rocks from the Kataraktis Passage Member of Olonos-Pindos Zone from Ileia Prefecture are evaluated based on their petrographic and geochemical characteristics, as well as their physical properties. Moreover, inter-relationships of the physical properties and geochemical composition were determined using simple linear regression analysis, in order to establish their mutual interactions. Investigation of the petrographic and
