Abstract
The basic objective of this study is to develop an end-use data base which will permit forecast of the derived demand for minerals to be made using currently available forecasts of broad-based mineral end- use industries such as motor vehicle manufacturing. In this regard, the following actions have been taken: (1) new Bureau of Mines end-use questionnaires were developed and tested for sulfur and sulfuric acid, (2) revision was made in the 1976 fluorspar consumers survey to collect relevant data, and (3) a new "fluorosilicic acid" production form was designed to collect end-use data. Some basic data are being collected by another organization, necessary translators were developed to convert available data into sic end-use format for lead, zinc, aluminum, and iron and steel excluding steel service center shipments, to avoid duplication in data collection.
