United Kingdom Minerals Yearbook 2002: Statistical data to 2001

United Kingdom Minerals Yearbook 2002: Statistical data to 2001

This annual publication provides comprehensive tabulated statistics, by year, on minerals production, consumption and external trade to 2001, with estimates of production for major mineral commodites in 2002 and text commentary on the UK’s mineral industry in 2002. For many minerals the production data, which are illustrated by graphics, are broken down further to planning region and county level, listed by end-use. This edition has a revised format developed in response to a user survey carried out in 2001. The chief difference is that the commodities are now arranged alphabetically so that the text, tables and illustrations for each commodity are all contained in the same section. Summaries of mineral production in England, Wales and Scotland are now presented in separate tables for the greater convenience of users concerned with data for the individual parts of the UK.

Recognising that large tonnages of aggregates will be required to fulfil the Government’s target for new housing in the south-east of England, we have also included in this edition of the Yearbook additional tables on aggregate minerals. The new tables comprise comparisons of regional aggregate survey results, reserves of aggregates, permissions for mineral workings, and the use of recycled and secondary materials.

United Kingdom Minerals Yearbook 2002 aims to provide industry, planners, policy makers and the public with the data necessary for an informed and rational debate on the future direction of the minerals industry in Britain.
