Investment requirements in the non-fuel mineral sector in the developing countries (Inglês)

The order of magnitude of the capital investment requirements of the developing market economy countries in the non-fuel mineral sector between 1976 and 1985 are estimated for nine major minerals: bauxite, copper, iron ore, lead, manganese ore, nickel, phosphate rock, tin, and zinc. The proportion of this investment likely to be financed from foreign sources is also estimated. The first step in calculating investment requirements is to project consumption, production and prices for each commodity. The second step is to estimate the capital investment required per annual ton of capacity, for mining and metallurgical processing. The third step is to estimate total capital requirements for projected capacity increases during the projection period by multiplying the tonnage increases by the estimated capital cost per ton of capacity. Over 80 percent of this investment is for bauxite, copper, and iron ore. The estimates of annual investment in the non-fuel mineral sector of the developing countries from foreign sources for the two periods amount to 11.6 and 18.3 percent of the total foreign capital flow from developed to developing countries in 1975. An appendix that discusses projected investment requirements of copper in greater detail is included.
