WORLD DISTRIBUTION AND FLOW OF MAJOR MINERAL COMMODITIES

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.
