VAcknowledgments Volume I, Metals and Minerals, of the Minerals Yearbook presents data on more than 90 nonfuel mineral commodities that were obtained as a result of the mineral information gathering activities of the Bureau of Mines. The collection, compilation, and analysis of data on the domestic minerals industries were performed by the staffs of the Sections of Ferrous Metals, Nonferrous Metals, and Nonmetallic Minerals, Division of Production/Consumption Data Collection and Interpretation and the Branch of Economic Analysis, Division of Analytic Studies. Statistical data were compiled from information supplied by mineral producers, processors, and users in response to production A consumption canvasses, and their voluntary response is gratefully appreciated. 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 Branch of Foreign Data. U.S. foreign trade data were obtained from reports of the Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce. World production and international trade data came from numerous sources, including reports from the Foreign Service, U.S. Department of State. The Branch of Publication Support Services, Division of Publication provided general guidance 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 supporting information by numerous cooperating State agencies. These organizations are listed in the acknowledgments to Volume II. Albert E. Schreck, Editor-in-Chief
