By James R. Boyle1 and Charles W. Hendry, Jr.2 The value of nonfuel mineral production in Florida in 1978 and 1979 was $1.1 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively. The State ranked first in the production of phosphate rock and titanium concentrates, and second in fuller's earth and peat. Staurolite and zircon concentrates were produced only in Florida. Nonmetals accounted for nearly all of the State's total mineral production value in 1978 and 1979. The principal nonmet als produced, in order of value, were phosphate rock, stone, cement, sand and gravel, and clays. All commodities, with the exception of magnesium compounds, staurolite, and zircon concentrates, registered an increase in production and value. Except for titanium concentrates and zircon concentrates, all commodities registered an increase in unit value.
