Mineral industry companies are spending a lot of money on exploration. The exploration funding is entirely driven by the price cycle of the commodity (gold, base metals, etc.). The size of exploration investment is determined normally by the quality of the opportunity and the project risk, as well as assessment of long-term prospect of the commodity.

Interest in a topic such as this appears to be limited, which is too bad. Resource extraction in Latin America is central to its history and the silver (mostly) was important in world trade, from China to Portugal.

As this guide includes only non- fuel minerals. The hope of finding mineral treasure was one of the incentives that led the early colonists to America and they were quite diligent in searching for metals. All along the Atlantic Coast, almost immediately after the first settlements, discoveries were made of silver, lead, copper, iron, tin, antimony, coal, and other valuable minerals; but, they were found generally in small quantities; and.

Soto. Industrial resources (minerals) are geological materials which are mined for their commercial value, which are not fuel (fuel minerals or mineral fuels) and are not sources of metals (metallic minerals) but are used in the industries based on their physical and/or chemical properties.

They are used in their natural state or after beneficiation either as raw materials or as additives in a wide. South America is relatively rich in mineral resources South America economy.

However, they are highly localized: few countries have a good balance of fuels and raw materials within their boundaries, and two countries, Uruguay and Paraguay, are nearly devoid of mineral wealth.Society for the advancement of mineralogy, crystallography, geochemistry, and petrology, and promotion of their uses in other sciences, industry, and the arts.In addition, during the s and early s, metal prices continued to fall with resulting poor profi ts and industry decline.

Many develop-ing countries opened their economies to foreign direct investments into the mining industry and started to privatize the industry, at a time when metal prices were at their lowest levels in over 30 years.
