Aggregate deposits

Marine aggregates comprise near-shore deposits of non-metallic detrital minerals and calcium carbonate. They occur both on beaches and on deeper seabed areas and are principally mined for use in the construction industry. Concentrated into their present occurrences by hydrodynamic processes, aggregates may have originally been deposited by mechanisms such as river or glacial deposition.
