Mineral resources are crucial for the competitiveness and innovation of the European economy. The minerals industry, comprising producers and users of industrial minerals and metals, aggregates and ornamental or dimensional stone, oil, gas and derivates, as well as coal and by-products, provides vital inputs to Europe’s economy and social well-being. Because of their great diversity, minerals and their derived products are necessary for almost every aspect of life.
