World mineral production is closely related to world steel production. World steel production for the past 25 years is graphed for five major areas: the United States, the Common Market, Japan, the U.S.S.R., and the rest of the world. Detailed tables compare the following major countries and land areas: area; population; iron ore and raw steel production, scrap and steel consumption; bauxite, alumina, and aluminum production/aluminum consumption; tin mine and smelter production and consumption; copper mine, smelter, and refinery production and consumption; crude oil and coal production and consumption. The role of minerals, including scrap, in the U.S. economy is assessed in detail.
