California From The Ground Up 2018

A vital California economy depends on the accessibility and availability of large local supplies of high quality construction materials.

Rock, sand and gravel (aggregate), Ready Mix concrete and industrial minerals are essential local materials that build roads, bridges, homes, hospitals, parks and public infrastructure. These materials also provide ingredients for beer, wine, vitamins, nutrients, and soil enhancements, as well as for paint, roofing shingles, glass, pipes, brick, plastic and solar panels.
