Mine & quarry

There are over 2000 active mines and quarries in the UK producing a wide range of minerals including construction aggregates, building stone, coal and industrial minerals. BGS continually monitors the location and nature of active onshore mineral workings in the UK and publishes these data in its Directory of Mines and Quarries (DMQ). We also research and maintain an overview of these key individual sectors of the UK minerals industry and their relationship with issues such as economic development, environment and heritage.
