Contents >> Mining >> Mining Production >> Construction materials

The production of construction materials is basic to all building activity and consequently affects most parts of the economy. Buildings, roads and most services depend on the availability of construction materials and the local production of these materials is one way to control costs. Production of construction materials takes place throughout Tasmania.
