SIC Code 3295 Minerals and Earths, Ground or Otherwise Treated




Establishments operating without a mine or quarry and primarily engaged in crushing, grinding, pulverizing, or otherwise preparing clay, ceramic, and refractory minerals; barite; and miscellaneous nonmetallic minerals, except fuels. These minerals are the crude products mined by establishments of Industry Groups 145 and 149, and by those ofIndustry 1479 mining barite. Also included are establishments primarily crushing slag and preparing roofing granules.

Cross References

The beneficiation or preparation of other minerals and metallic ores, and the cleaning and grading of coal, are classified inDivision B, Mining, whether or not the operation is associated with a mine.
