Description
Excerpt: In 2003, the estimated value1 of nonfuel mineral production for North Dakota was $37.7 million, based upon preliminary U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data. This was about a 3% increase from that of 20022 and followed a 9.6% increase in 2002 from 2001. North Dakota’s leading nonfuel mineral by value in 2003 continued to be construction sand and gravel. This high-volume low-value commodity accounted for about three-fourths of the State’s nonfuel raw mineral production value. Lime was second by value, and crushed stone was third. In 2003, lime, with an increase in production, led the State’s increase in value, the commodity’s value up more than $2 million. The State’s rise in value in 2002 resulted from increases in the production and value of construction sand and gravel, up $1.6 million, an increase in the value of lime, and increases in the production and values of crushed stone as a group (granite, limestone, volcanic cinder, and miscellaneous) (descending order of change). The value of gemstones was up slightly, while the production and values of common clays and industrial sand and gravel were down slightly (table 1). The following narrative information was provided by the North Dakota Geological Survey3 (NDGS).
