MINERALS IN THE U.S. ECONOMY: TEN-YEAR SUPPLY-DEMAND PROFILES FOR NONFUEL MINERAL COMMODITIES 1968-77
The accompanying supply-demand diagrams and 10-year tables for nonfuel mineral commodities present essential data required by government, industry, and others to formulate policies and programs that can help assure an adequate and continuing supply of mineral raw materials. The 10-year data base terminates with 1977 figures because adequate world information was not available beyond that date. The selected mineral supply-demand tables and flow diagrams comprise but one "output" from the massive body of information and data collected by the Bureau of Mines on a continuing basis covering mineral production, consumption, prices, shipments, imports, exports, and stocks, as well as industry activities in all States and abroad.
