THE MINERAL INDUSTRY OF INDIANA 
255 
a one-shift, 4-day-week basis. Dimension limestone was produced by 15 companies
at 17 quarries in Franklin, Lawrence, Monroe, and Rush Counties. Victor Oolitic
Stone Co. and Indiana Limestone Co. were the largest producers with operations
in Monroe and Lawrence Counties. Three companies produced dimension sandstone
in Lawrence, Monroe, and Morgan Counties. Production and value of all dimension
stone 
were slightly lower than that of 1971. 
 Principal uses for Indiana's stone output were as follows: 63% for road
base and paving materials; 14% for concrete aggregate; 12% for manufacturing
portland cement; 6% for agricultural uses; and the remainder for railroad
ballast, riprap and jettystone, rough and dressed architectural dimension
stone, and miscellaneous chemical and industrial uses.
