Abstract
The purpose of this project was to study the relationships between the dry bulk shipping industry and the U.S. mineral industries, particularly the effects on the mineral industries of developments in the shipping industry. To this end, a study was begun on past developments in and relationships between the shipping and mineral industries. Minerals that are not imported or exported in bulk are beyond the scope of this study. It was found that the coal industry and those industries processing ores of aluminum, chromium, manganese, iron, and phosphorous are more dependent than others on shortrun and longrun developments in the shipping market. Forecasts were prepared for the bulk shipping industry, potential problem areas were pinpointed, and possible policy actions by the Bureau of Mines were outlined.
