Council Responsibilities

The Industrial Minerals Advisory Council is composed of eight representatives of the industrial minerals industry who are appointed by the director of the department. The representatives include three from limestone producers and one each from industries involved in mining clay, sandstone, sand and gravel, barite and granite. Other members include the director (or designee) of the Department of Transportation and the director (or designee) of the Department of Natural Resources, who acts as chairperson of the council.

The primary duty of the council is to advise the department on the collection, processing, management and distribution of geologic and hydrologic information to assist the industrial mineral industry. Expenditures from the geologic resources fund, which was created to complete these activities, are reviewed by the council, and the council advises the department on appropriate fees to support the fund.
