Abstract
The Bureau of Mines estimated the potential availability of lead and zinc from 205 mines and deposits in Market Economy Countries (MECs), by performing detailed geologic, engineering, and cost evaluations. These evaluated properties had demonstrated resources totaling 57 Mmt of contained lead, and accounted for approximately two thirds of the Bureau of Mines reserve base for lead in MECs (almost 96 Mmt). These properties had (in situ contained metal) zinc resources totaling 160 Mmt, and also accounted for almost two-thirds of the Bureau's reserve base for zinc in MECs (259 Mmt).
