Excerpt: Pennsylvania ranked 11th in total nonfuel mineral value1 in 1994, down from 10th in 1993, according to the U.S. Bureau of Mines. The estimated value for 1994 was $964 million, a 6% increase over that of 1993. This followed a 4% increase in 1993 from 1992. The State accounted for 3% of the U.S. total. Pennsylvania is exclusively an industrial mineral and coal producing State; any metals, especially steel, produced in the State are processed from materials received from other domestic or foreign sources. Pennsylvania continued to be among the Nation's top producers of crushed stone, cement, and lime; those three commodities represented 87% of the State's total nonfuel mineral value. The State remained second in the United States in the production of crushed stone; third in portland cement and climbed from fifth to fourth in the production of lime. Although production of masonry highcement in Pennsylvania marginally increased in 1994, significant increases occurred in two other States, dropping Pennsylvania from fourth to sixth. Compared with 1993, the value of crushed stone, portland cement, construction sand and gravel, masonry cement, and peat increased in 1994. Decreases occurred in the value of lime, dimension stone, and common clays.
