By James J. Hill' and L. J. Prosser, Jr.2 The value of Indiana's nonfuel mineral production was $291 million in 1978 and $326 million in 1979. Although value surpassed the $300 million mark for the first time in 1979, output declined in all commodities except abrasives, peat, and stone. The following, in decreasing order of value, con- tinued as the State's leading commodities: Portland cement, crushed stone, and sand and gravel. Clays, gypsum, masonry cement, dimension stone, and lime were also produced. Imported materials processed in the State included fluorspar and perlite.
