Abstract

This study was initiated seven years ago to answer such questions as: How are the mineral sectors affected by a determined policy of increased (or decreased) recycling? What effects did the expected changes in consumption have on the minerals industry (and on other sectors of the economy)? What are the magnitudes of the structural changes brought about by alternative US mineral policies regarding self-sufficiency or import-dependence for minerals? The 26 non- fuel minerals considered are Fe, Ni, Mn, Cr, Si, W, Mo, V, Ti, Zn, Mg, Sn, Hg, Al, Cu, Pb, Au, Ag, Pt, S, F, Cl, B, K, phosphate rock and soda ash. The methodological approach, the assumptions used in designing the scenarios and alternative projections to 2000 AD are all explained together with numerous figures and tables. There is a useful chapter on summaries and conclusions (50 pp) in which the projections for the USA and the rest of the world are separately discussed.-R.A.H.
