Construction aggregates provide one of the basic resources for infrastructure world-wide. Planning for construction aggregates and the extractive industry requires a coordinated endeavour that involves three elements: basic inventory analysis and resource protection strategies, environmental protection, and coordination between levels of government. This paper provides an overview of the approach taken in Queensland to develop and protect construction aggregate resources.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
