Eastern Johnson County and western Shelby County have large sand and gravel deposits which can furnish aggregate necessary for the future expansion of Indianapolis and adjacent areas. Evaluation of the Johnson County-Shelby County area as a potential source for aggregate must take into account such social-economic factors as transportation facilities, zoning regulations, present land use, and proximity to future markets and such geologic factors as composition and grain size of the materials, thickness of the deposits, and availability of water. On the basis of the above-mentioned factors, several selected places in this area are worthy of more detailed prospecting to locate the best sand and gravel deposits.
