Abstract
This report details the investigation of seven sand and gravel areas in the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone because of their perceived potential for containing economically viable deposits. Based on preliminary resource and market analysis, three of these areas were judged to have favorable near-term potential for development. Additional engineering, cost, and financial analysis indicate that two of the three areas--offshore Boston, MA, and New York, NY-- should be considered for near-term leasing. Recommendations concerning the two above areas, as well as several other offshore areas, address the need for detailed market analysis, sample characterization studies to determine commercial suitability, and studies to refine cost and financial analyses.
