Industrial and Fuel Minerals of Manitoba

THE major development of industrial minerals in Manitoba has been in building materials. 'The build10g-stone industry is developed far beyond the needs of the Province, and the well known Tyndall limestone is marketed over a wide area throughout the other provinces in Canada. Similarly, gypsum and gypsum products are produced in excess of local requirements and are exported to adjacent provinces. The crushed-stone, sand and gravel, limestone, and lime industries are sufficiently developed to supply the needs of the Province and, notably in the case of lime and limestone, there is a surplus for export to the adjacent provinces and to the United States.
