European mineral statistics
European Mineral Statistics provides statistical information about minerals and metals in Europe. It provides the essential background intelligence for any European minerals-related activities.
Production, export and import tables are presented for all EU members and EU candidate countries, plus Norway and Switzerland, in two sections:
- by individual country
- by commodity, with bullets on salient features and graphics
More than 70 different mineral commodities are included from Aluminium to Zirconium, plus statistics relating to primary aggregates and cement.
The book also includes commentary discussing the different categories of minerals – construction minerals, industrial minerals, metals and energy minerals – in the European context and contains general information on the compilation of data.
Minerals Intelligence Network for Europe (Minerals4EU)
From September 2013 to August 2015, BGS participated in the Minerals4EU project funded by the European Union 7th Framework Programme. This project was designed to contribute towards the recommendations of the EU's Raw Materials Initiative and has delivered a web portal with spatial data on Europe's mineral resources, the most comprehensive European Minerals Yearbook ever produced and a foresight study. These deliverables can be accessed on this link: http://minerals4eu.brgm-rec.fr/. The project team has also put in place a Minerals4EU Foundation which, together with its associated Network, aims to continue to develop this work.
Building on their existing experience in collecting worldwide mineral production and trade statistics, BGS led the Work Package which developed the Yearbook. In addition to production and trade figures, the Yearbook includes available data relating to resources, reserves and exploration data for primary minerals, together with information relating to secondary raw materials. This Yearbook was published by August 2015 and is accessible from the above link.
