The CGS Mineral Resources Section estimates the total value of 1995 mineral fuel production in Colorado to be $1,398 million dollars. The value of the coal production is estimated at $363 million.

Nonfuel mineral production — including metals, industrial minerals, and construction materials – Colorado’s mineral production in 1995 is estimated at $578 million. Improvement from prior years is due chiefly to escalated production of gold and molybdenum, and a substantial price increase for molybdenum through most of the year. Declines in the production of sand, gravel, and aggregate balanced some of the gains in the hard rock mining industry.
