Abstract:

This book reviews resource potential, mineral trade and consumption, the role of minerals internally and in world supply, the nature of minerals enterprise, major mineral industries, labor and infrastructure (as it affects industrial development), national attitudes and plans, and the general economic outlook for twenty-six countries. A mineral-supply data tabulation and a basic mineral-location map is provided for most of the countries reviewed. There are also more than a hundred additional mineral or industrial maps and photographs. A general regional view of Asia’s people, history, products, economies, resources, basic industries, and development problems is accompanied by charts and tabulations describing each area’s relative importance as a mineral producer, consumer, importer, and exporter. Each country-chapter is organized according to the following categories: significance of minerals, mineral supply position, nature of mineral enterprise, principal mineral industries, mine and industry workers, mineral transport, energy and power, and summary outlook.
