Summary

The term of resources and reserves of mineral raw materials. World resources, reserves and production of particular fuels and energy minerals, metalliferous, nonmetalliferous and hydromineral raw materials. Major industrial types and their shares in the amounts of resources, reserves and production overall and according to major present and potential producers. Trends in the development of reserves and production and factors affecting them. Problems of the geographically and geopolitically uneven distribution of major mineral resources. Issues of the relation between developing and industrially advanced countries in connection with the utilisation of mineral resources. Mineral resources of seas and oceans. Factors affecting their future utilisation. The utilisation of world mineral resources and the issues of sustainable development.
