Brett Campbell and Wiktor Adamowicz

No 170187, 2014 Annual Meeting, July 27-29, 2014, Minneapolis, Minnesota from Agricultural and Applied Economics Association

Abstract: Aggregate resources are deposits of sand, gravel and crushed stone that are used to construct everything from roads and sidewalks to hospitals and schools • Mining these resources is a source of negative environmental externalities (e.g. dust, noise, visual impacts) • Negative externalities generated from extraction should be considered when making locational and reclamation decisions
