Abstract This edition of the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) Minerals Yearbook discusses the performance of the worldwide minerals and materials industries during 2010 and provides background information to assist in intepreting that performance. Content of the individual Minerals Yearbook volumes follows: Volume I, Metals and Minerals, contains chapters about virtually all metallic and industrial mineral commodities important to the U. S. economy. Chapters on survey methods, summary statistics for domestic nonfuel minerals, and trends in mining and quarrying in the metals and industrial mineral industries in the United States are also included; Volume II, Area Reports, Domestic, contains a chapter on the mineral industry of each of the 50 States and Puerto Rico and the Administered Islands. This volume also has chapters on survey methods and summary statistics of domestic nonfuel minerals; Volume III, Area Reports: International, is published as four separate reports. These regional reports contain the latest available minerals data on more than 190 foreign countries and discuss the importance of minerals to the economies of these nations and the United States. Each report begins with an overview of the region's mineral industries during the year. It continues with individual country chapters that examine the mining, refining, processing, and use of minerals in each country of the region and how each country's mineral industry relates to U. S. industry. Most chapters include production tables and industry structure tables, information about Government policies and programs that effect the country's mineral industry, and an overlook section.
