U.S. DEPENDENCE ON IMPORTS OF FIVE CRITICAL MINERALS: IMPLICATION AND POLICY ALTERNATIVES

U.S. concern over mineral availability since the oil embargo led GAO to review the reliability of foreign sources in providing the United States an uninterrupted supply of bauxite, chromium, manganese, nickel, and tin at reasonable prices. These five minerals represent about one half of the net value of U.S. nonfuel mineral imports. This report summarizes the analysis of the issues surrounding U.S. dependence on foreign suppliers for these nonfuel minerals.
