World mineral statistics archive

A selection of World mineral statistics publications, BGS©NERC

Welcome to the World Mineral Statistics electronic archive from the British Geological Survey (BGS).

The BGS, and its predecessor organisations, have compiled production and trade statistics on a wide range of mineral commodities since 1913. From 1992 the information is contained in one of the largest and most comprehensive databases in the world; however, the older data has historically been available only on paper. To make this archive of important data more accessible to a wider audience, the BGS has scanned these legacy publications and made them available to download as pdfs.

We would be delighted to hear your general views on the World Archive. Please send your comments to the minerals team.
