By Doss H. White, Jr.1 and Robert I. Davis2 The value of New Hampshire's nonfuel mineral production in 1978 and 1979 was $23.2 million and $23.3, respectively. Sand and gravel and stone were the major mineralcommodities produced during the 1978-79 period. Trends and Developments.—Although the number of industrial workers active in basic mineral extraction was small, approximately 20% of the State's work force was engaged in mineral-dependent construction or in the manufacture of products that were either derived from mineral raw materials or were heavily dependent on these raw materials. New Hampshire continued to be a net importer of mineral commodities. Petroleum products and liquefied natural gas, salt, gypsum, mica, cement, lime, soapstone, and crude perlite were all imported for consumption or for the manufacture of other products of higher value. Most of the State's imported mineral commodities passed through the port of Portsmouth. 1977 1978 1979 Value Value Value Quantity (thou- Quantity (thou- Quantity (thou aands) sands) sands)
