A bleak Ghazni Province seems to offer little, but a Pentagon study says it may have among the world’s largest deposits of lithium. WASHINGTON — The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan , far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials. The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to ...
Paraguay’s mineral industry includes the production of cement, iron and steel, and petroleum derivatives. Paraguay has no known natural gas or oil reserves. To meet its crude oil and petroleum products demand, Paraguay relies completely on imports of approximately 25,400 barrels per day (bbl/d) (2006 est.). The mining sector contributes little to the country’s economy, accounting for only 0.1% of the GDP. 1 Paraguay’s tax exemptions on imports of equipment for natural gas and petroleum exploration, development, and production are expected to continue in the medium and long terms. Cement, natural gas, and petroleum investors have ...

FavStocks » China's Tungsten Demand to Grow Eight Percent this Year
China is taking measures to make sure they will be able to supply their domestic tungsten demand; but these measures have a few countries calling foul play. In 2010, it is estimated that China will account for 37 percent of the world’s tungsten consumption, and the nations thirst for the metal is showing no signs of slowing down.  In order to meet their growing demand for minor metals, the country is once again curbing exports, a move for which they are already under investigation. At the current pace of exploration and production, China’s resources of tungsten will last 20 years, and molybdenum 100 years. The government will ... market research, surveys and trends

Accounting for Mineral Resources: Issues and BEA's Initial Estimates
Among natural assets, the characteristics of minerals—oil, gas, coal, and nonfuel minerals—are the most similar to the characteristics of assets included in traditional economic accounting systems. Not surprisingly then, minerals have long been considered as candidates for a treatment that is symmetrical with the treatment given other assets. Such a treatment is at the heart of the integrated economic and environmental satellite accounts (IEESA's) , which are the subject of a companion article, beginning on page 33. Failure to account symmetrically for mineral resources as a form of capital has been blamed ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
NSCB - Philippine Economic-Environmental and Natural Resources ...
Minerals are natural substances -- usually comprising "inorganic element or compound, having an orderly internal structure and characteristics, chemical composition, crystal form, and physical properties" (NAMRIA-DENR, 1991). Any concentration of these minerals, with a potential economic value that can be extracted at a profit, is considered a mineral resource. Despite its small area, the Philippines is one of the world's richly endowed countries in terms of mineral resources. In 1994, the estimated levels of metallic and non-metallic mineral reserves stood at 7 billion metric tons and 50 billion metric tons, respectively. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Valuation of a mining project | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
I wud appreciate some help on approach to valuation of a mining project/company having concession agreement (exploration and exploitation) for 50 years in a supposedly mineral rich (copper, cobalt, silver) land but with very limited technical details of reserves at this moment. Basically, need some proxy for reserves and there are companies in close proximity for whom the reserves details (grade, measures reserves) are available. In general, is it a fair idea to assume even distribution of minerals in a particular geography/region or are there some hotspots where mineral reserves are concentrated typically ? posted 7 months ago in
