Construction Materials Mining Companies in Florida must have a letter of credit or a surety bond for $100,000 before a license will be issued. A license is valid for ten years from the date of issue. Florida ranks fifth in the nation for mineral production, and second in the nation for limestone production. Other mining in Florida includes sand, gravel, clay, heavy minerals, phosphate and peat. Construction Materials Mining Companies use explosives, which can result in physical ground vibrations and air blasts. The surety bond guarantees that the mining companies will faithfully comply with all rules and regulations of the Department of Financial Services to avoid damages to nearby property owners.
