Abstract

Nineteen companies mined kaolin in eight states in 2012. Production, on the basis of preliminary data, was estimated to be 5.88 Mt (6.48 million st) valued at $841 million, an increase from 5.77 Mt (6.36 million st) valued at $817 million in 2011. Production in Georgia, the top producing state, increased to an estimated 5.45 Mt (6.01 million st) valued at $804 million in 2012 from 5.34 Mt (5.89 million st) valued at $781 million in 2011. Georgia accounted for 93 percent of U.S. production tonnage and nearly the entire domestic water-washed, delaminated and pigment-grade calcined kaolin production.
