national industry 212391

Potash, Soda, and Borate Mineral Mining

Overview

This U.S. industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in developing the mine site, mining and/or milling, or otherwise beneficiating (i.e., preparing) natural potassium, sodium, or boron compounds. Drylake brine operations are included in this industry, as well as establishments engaged in producing the specified minerals from underground and open pit mines.

The immediate parent of national industry 212391 is international industry 21239: Other Nonmetallic Mineral Mining and Quarrying
