I am installing slate tile over marble that is surrently around my fireplace. I want to lay over the marble as removing the marble will require replacing the dry wall. What is a good product or method to prep the marble to accept a tight bond with the mastic used to install the slate? Thank you

You are going to have to scuff the marble up or drill small holes, or it will never bond
