Industrial minerals are vital to a modern economy. Minerals such as limestone, salt, kaolin and silica sand provide essential raw materials and chemical feedstocks which underpin manufacturing industry, construction and agriculture. They also have important environmental applications, such as water treatment, flue gas desulphurisation and road de-icing.

This report presents the results of a study commissioned by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister on the 'Review of planning issues relevant to non-energy minerals, other than aggregates, in England.' It provides background information on a range of industrial minerals including kaolin, ball clay, fuller's earth, cement raw materials, industrial limestone and dolomite, gypsum, salt, potash, fluorspar and barytes, and identifies the distinctive planning issues relevant to each mineral. The report also provides policy advice and a number of recommendations. Litho stock now out of print but you may download a copy from http://www.bgs.ac.uk/downloads/
