USGS Releases Annual Mineral Commodity Summaries

Posted By RJ Alpers, Thursday, February 1, 2018

On Wednesday, January 31, the USGS released its annual Mineral Commodity Summaries. The 2017 results show that U.S. mines produced estimated $75.2billion of raw mineral materials, a 6 percent increase over 2016. The $75.2 billion in nonfuel mineral production by U.S. mines this year is made up of industrial minerals, including aggregates, and metals. The USGS National Minerals Information Center report includes statistics on more than 90 mineral commodities that are important to the U.S. economy and national security. The report also identifies events, trends and issues in the domestic and international minerals industries. We encourage all to view the summary article and link to the report here.
