UK Minerals Strategy


The UK mineral strategy was launched earlier this year in July and highlights the UK demand for minerals and mineral production over the next 25 years. The material flow currently in the economy in a typical day is 1 million tonnes, which is the equivalent of roughly 166,666 African bush elephants.

It highlights this demand will be at least 5 billion tonnes, with most of it needing to be sourced from within the UK.
