This volume contains mineral production statistics for the five year period from 2009 to 2013, for more than 70 mineral commodities, by country worldwide. It is the latest publication from the World Mineral Statistics dataset which began in 1913. The information contained in the dataset, and associated publications, is compiled from a wide range of sources: home and overseas government departments, national statistical offices, specialist commodity authorities, company reports, and a network of contacts throughout the world. The database compilers aim for integrity and accuracy in the data and, for quality control purposes, participate in international specialist groups, and maintain close links with other mineral statistics providers in Europe and North America. The data provides essential mineral intelligence for: • security of supply issues • economic analyses • environmental issues • sustainable development planning • regulation and policy issues • commercial strategic planning The data are available in the following formats: • Annual publication of “World Mineral Production” and its predecessors, which can be downloaded in pdf from our World Archive • MS Excel for years from 1992 via our data download tool • The most recent editions are available to purchase in hard copy from the BGS online shop • One off reports such as those shown lower down this page, available for download in pdf
