Geological Survey Reporting

Geological survey reporting is the systematic investigation of the geology beneath a given piece of ground for the purpose of creating a geological map or model. Almost all countries in the world have an arm of government, which performs this function. Refer to Geology Page for a full listing of nations which try to maintain a geological survey.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) annually publishes a “Mineral Yearbook with both gold and silver production statistics with global totals.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) annually publishes “World Mineral Statistics” which contains mineral production statistics for a five year period (in kilograms).

Figures for calendar year 2021 from the USGS and BGS will be available in 2023.
