DescriptionAbstract
This data set includes construction minerals operations in the United States. The data represent commodities covered by the Minerals Information Team (MIT) of the U.S. Geological Survey. The mineral operations are plants and/or mines considered active in 1997, or in 2001 for ball clay and common clay, and surveyed by the MIT. Excluded are construction sand and gravel and crushed stone. This file is an update of the 1998 data set.
Purpose
