Session 13.1-1 European Raw Materials:
The MINTELL4EU project builds upon previous European-wide mineral intelligence projects, including ORAMA, MICA, MINventory and particularly the Minerals Intelligence Network for Europe project (Minerals4EU). In this most recent iteration, we have surveyed European geological surveys and other relevant data sources for detailed information on European mineral production, trade, resource, reserve and exploration data.
We present an updated electronic Minerals Yearbook, a snapshot of current European mineral intelligence. We will illustrate some preliminary data analysis of resources and reserves using baseline data from the previous survey in 2013. Time series analysis of production and trade data from 2013 will also be shown. We also present comparisons of European mineral data with global datasets for selected commodities essential to the net-zero carbon transition.
