Industrial minerals and the environment: A review of international market trends

Abstract Enhanced concern for protection of the environment and attendant actions by environmental regulatory authorities in support of this concern are influencing, to varying degrees, the demand and supply of a range of industrial minerals in a number of jurisdictions.
