Abstract
This final report contains an overview of the project for developing foreign economic indices, details of the project output, project challenges and problems, and a summary of major accomplishments. Factor input costs in the mining sector of 95 countries were described by 12 index time series: (1) mining wages, (2) construction wages, (3) equipment and repair costs, (4) bits and related steel, (5) timber and lumber, (6) fuel, (7) powder and blasting agents, (8) tires, (9) construction materials, (10) industrial materials, (11) transportation, and (12) electrical power. The indices were developed primarily for use in the Bureau of Mines Minerals Availability Program in assessing the worldwide availability of nonfuel minerals. These indices combined with weight factors developed by Bureau personnel will be used to perform updates of all costs relating to the mining industry.
