VAcknowledgments Volume I, Metals, Minerals, and Fuels, of the Minerals Yearbook summarizes the significant data pertaining to mineral commodities obtained as a result of the mineral intelligence gathering activities of the divisions and offices of the Assistant Directorate—Mineral Supply. The collection, compilation, and analysis of the data on the domestic minerals and mineral fuel industries were performed by the staffs of the Divisions of Ferrous Metals, Fossil Fuels, Nonferrous Metals, and Nonmetallic Minerals. Statistical data were compiled by the statistical staffs of these Divisions from information supplied by mineral producers, processors, and users in response to production and consumption canvasses, and their voluntary response is gratefully acknowledged. The information obtained from individual firms by means of confidential surveys has been grouped to provide statistical aggregates. Data on individual firms are presented only if available from published or other nonconfidential sources or when permission of the companies has been granted. Other material appearing in this volume was obtained from the trade and technical press, industry contacts, and numerous other sources. Statistics on U.S. imports and exports, world production, and foreign country trade were compiled in the Office of Technical Data Services. The foreign trade data for the United States were obtained from reports of the Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of commerce. World production and trade data came from numerous sources, including reports from the Foreign Service, U.S. Department of State. The Office of Technical Data Services also provided general direction on the preparation and coordination of the chapters in this volume and reviewed the manuscripts to insure statistical consistency among the tables, figures, and text, between this volume and other volumes, and between this edition and those of former years. Acknowledgment is also particularly made of the splendid cooperation of the business press, trade associations, scientific journals, international organizations, and other Federal agencies that supplied information. The Bureau of Mines has been assisted in collecting mine-production data and the supporting information- appearing in the Minerals Yearbook by numerous cooperating State agencies. These organizations are listed in the acknowledgment to Volume II. ALBERT E. SCHRECK, Editor-In-Chief
