national industry 212390

Other Nonmetallic Mineral Mining and Quarrying

Overview

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in developing the mine site, mining, and/or milling or otherwise beneficiating (i.e., preparing) nonmetallic minerals (except coal, stone, sand, gravel, clay, and ceramic and refractory minerals). 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 212390 is international industry 21239: Other Nonmetallic Mineral Mining and Quarrying
