Mineral resources are essential to our society. For each person in the United States, approximately 10 tons of minerals are mined annually. Most of this consumption is of bulk mineral commodities (principally aggregates such as sand, gravel, and crushed stone) that are used locally, within about 30 miles of the site where they were mined. Every State mines and produces mineral aggregates.
