Mining & Quarrying: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US mining and quarrying materials handled in metric tons of material at the mine or quarry level. Material handled refers to the excavated volumes of metal ores, industrial minerals, and waste. Total material handled is segmented by targeted resource in terms of: industrial minerals (stone; sand and gravel; phosphate rock; and other industrial minerals such as gypsum, industrial clays, and salt) and metal ores (gold; copper; iron ore; and other metal ores such as lead, lithium, magnesium, tin, and zinc).

To illustrate historical trends, total materials handed, the various segments, and trade are provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018.

Mining and quarrying for fuel sources (e.g., coal) are excluded from the scope of this report, as are oil and gas extraction. Re-exports of mined materials and waste are excluded from the scope of this report.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
