Science

We support research and data collection on non-fuel mineral resources. We study geologic processes that form known mineral resources at specific areas in the Earth's crust; assess potential future mineral resource supply; characterize ore deposits by host geology, chemistry, mineralogy, environmental impacts; and compile data on production, consumption, and the sustainability of supply chains.
