Details on Contents, Weights, Measures and Values

Mineral raw materials and ore bodies with significant variations in valuable mineral content have been calculated to obtain the actually useable mineral content, e.g. highly variable Fe-contents of iron carbonates and iron oxides. Production figures throughout this report do not (unless otherwise specified) refer to crude ore (ROM/Run of mine) or concentrate produced from it, but indicate the content of recoverable valuable elements and compounds.

Total world production figures do not include Bauxite production as Bauxite is the base raw material in Aluminium production. Production figures for Bauxite can be found in commodity and country statistics.
