Broderick1 During 1971 Austria produced a variety of mineral commodities including aluminum, coal, copper, lead and zinc, iron and steel, cement, graphite, kaolin, magnesite, salt, crude oil and natural gas. Except for magnesite and graphite, production was not significant by world standards and imports of raw minerals and fuels were essential to sustain the industrial economy. The Austrian economy in 1971 continued its unprecedented boom. Although the growth rate declined from 7.1 percent in 1970 to about 6 percent in 1971, domestic consumer buying, the construction industry, and tourism kept the economy moving at a high level. Only a small part of the gross national product (GNP) was contributed by the mineral industry. In 1971 Austria's state-owned Osterreichisch-Alpine Montangesellschaft A. G. (OAMG), of Vienna, and a number of private firms formed a new mining and exploration company, Austromineral Osterreichische Gesellschaft für Lagerstattenschliessung, Bergbau und Mineralwirtschaft G.m.b.H. KG; participation in this new company has since been acquired by the nationalized Vereinigte Osterreichische Eisen und Stahlwerke A.G. (VOEST), of Linz. The company was formed to ensure that the country's raw material needs are met on a systematic basis, and the company is to provide a wide range of services. It will undertake prospecting work, both in Austria and overseas, and will participate in exploiting promising deposits. 1 Physical scientist, Division of Ferrous Metals.
