Abstract
America's increasing mineral dependency on foreign sources of supply has become a major issue. In many cases, however, the trend toward increased imports that many characterize as "dependency" is a natural outcome of post-World War II international prosperity, and of America's vigorous participation in world trade. We should distinguish between mere dependency and true vulnerability, a distinction that may not always be easy to make without a careful analysis of the situation for a given mineral. The Bureau of Mines is expanding its capacity to make such analyses, as the basis for policy formulation, and to conduct research toward technologies that can increase our mineral self-sufficiency as necessary.
