Minerals are all around us
Take time to consider just how many everyday items exist thanks to minerals
From the houses and the way we live in them to the roads we travel on to the way we use modern communication devices to talk to each other, minerals have a significant impact on our daily lives. Yet we give very little thought as to where these minerals come from and how they are obtained.
The quarrying industry supports just about every other industry sector and is vital for the UK economy.
Our annual National Minerals Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of the crucial role minerals play in shaping our built and natural environment whilst also appreciating those in the mineral products sector.
