NTIS: PB 85-215671 :72 pages
This report presents the development and updating of economic indices for South Africa for the period from 1970 through 1983; the Phase I report covered the period 1970 through 1981. Factor input costs in the mining sector 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 being developed by Bureau personnel will be used to perform updates of all costs relating to the mining industry.
