Front Cover
Open University Worldwide, 2005 - Building materials - 158 pages
Minerals takes a global view of a range of industrial minerals (bulk raw materials) with emphasis on their occurrence and properties in relation to extraction processes and uses. The main focus is on construction materials, including building stone, brick clays, cement, plaster and the bulk aggregates required in vast quantities for concrete and road building. A selection of minerals with more specialised uses (e.g. salt, china clay, silica sand, talc) are also considered.
