Cemex gets green light for US sand mine
Published: 06 May 2004

The cement major Cemex has been granted by an US court the concession to develop a sand mine at Santa Clarita, California, from where it plans to product 56.1Mt. The permission has been delayed by pressures from environmental related groups, but their resistance may be diminished with the granting of US$1.5m by Cemex for environmental projects.
