Commodities & statistics
An experienced team compiles statistics of mineral production and trade for the United Kingdom and the world. The data are published as annual books and ad-hoc/customised reports to suit particular requirements. The work involves close contact with the minerals industry in the UK and throughout the world. Quality is assured by participating in international forums and by a regular exchange of information with geological survey organisations, minerals bureaux and other official and commercial entities world-wide.
