Abstract: This article discusses the structuring of mining industry in the State of Sao Paulo and its tendency to concentrate geographically, seeking to perform the recognition of its main clusters. The procedures adopted for statistical identification, mapping and typological characterization of these agglomerations incorporated concepts and some determinants applied to the manufacturing industry (indices of specialization, relative participation of employment in a regional level as compared to a state level, and minimum number of firms). The values of theses determinants had to be adjusted and combined with specific parameters of the productive specialization for the mining industry, considering different types of raw materials. Thirty potential clusters with specialization in ten non-metallic minerals were recognized. Among them, mineral water, sand, crushed stone, ceramic clays, and carbonate rocks are highlighted. The forward chaining of the mining activities linked with the manufacturing industry is also very common. This situation is far more developed in the context of the mineral aggregate extractive sector - which presents a forward linkage with some concentrations of firms for concrete products. The same situation appears in the clay mining - that supply the expressive tiles and structural ceramics clusters -, and in the mineral water industry. Considering that several of these agglomerations have a significant weight in their own productive segments and the local economies, they play an important role in the performance of sectorial policies, as well as in local development.
