of potentially valuable publicly or privately owned aggregate lands located outside of urban
or developed areas where aggregate mining is restricted, without consideration of their
present land use. The program shall give priority to identification and classification in areas
of the state where urbanization or other factors are or may be resulting in a loss of aggregate
resources to development. Lands shall be classified as:

(2) potential resources, being those containing potentially significant deposits and
meriting further evaluation; or

(3) subeconomic resources, being those containing no significant deposits.
