Derby & Derbyshire Minerals Core Strategy: Key Issues & Options Part One: Background Information Chapter 4: A Portrait of Minerals in Derbyshire the Mineral Resources in Derbyshire section

Mineral resources in Derbyshire - Suggest that caution is used in paragraph 4.5 in suggesting that there is an 'abundance of deposits elsewhere' particularly in relation to peat. Even if this is the case - is exploitation of this resource desirable, sustainable or practicable (given the protection applied to many such areas both nationally and internationally)?

Para 4.4: The term 'fluorspar' is probably better than 'fluorite' in this context. The paragraph implies that silica sand is currently being extracted and I am not sure that it is.
