According to the recently released Mineral Commodity Summary for 2012 compiled by the United States Geological Survey, the estimated value of mined materials in the U.S. was $113 billion (almost split evenly between coal, metals and minerals). This is up about 12% compared with 2010.

Project construction starts more than doubled in 2011 when compared to 2010. Metals & Minerals companies kicked off more than $35 billion in projects in 2011.
