    1 Summary

    This report describes the draft European Minerals Yearbook which represents deliverable 4.4

    of the Minerals4EU project. The draft Yearbook itself was available from the end of March

    2015, when it entered a period of testing.

    At the time of writing (12 June 2015) the Yearbook remains a work in progress because various corrections and revisions are still outstanding. During its testing phase, all data

    contained within the Yearbook are being checked and all functions verified. A final version of

    the Yearbook is scheduled for release towards the end of the Minerals4EU project in August

    2015.

    This report provides guidance to users on the data available in the Yearbook and how to

    navigate around the digital Yearbook.

    Further information can be found in the documents and reports published on the project

    website at: www.minerals4eu.eu

    2 Introduction

    Deliverable 4.4 of the Minerals4EU project is the release of a draft European Minerals

    Yearbook and this is available on the following weblink: http://minerals4eu.brgm-

    rec.fr/m4eu-yearbook/theme_selection.html

    However, it should be remembered that, at the time of writing (June 2015), this Yearbook is still a work in progress.

    Additional or revised data are still being loaded to the yearbook, sankey diagrams are still

    being added for the waste flow tab of the by country section and other adjustments are also required before the Yearbook will be considered final. The Yearbook is currently in a testing phase and a number of corrections have already been identified. The work package is dependent upon BRGM (the French Geological Survey), who have been building the

    Yearbook from a technical perspective, to implement the required changes.

    The new European Minerals Yearbook contains the following data types:

    Production data for primary minerals collected by BGS using long established BGS procedures and a network of contacts with data providers. They were collected by

    three main ways: writing directly to the data source, often using a questionnaire; receiving printed or digital publications; and consulting websites or web-based

    databases.

    Import and export data for primary minerals purchased in bulk from an agency that specialises in monitoring trade information. These data are then compared to the

    United Nations (UN) commodity trade web-database, to Eurostats online database, or, in some cases, databases compiled by national statistical offices.

    Resource, reserve and exploration data for primary minerals collected during the Minerals4EU project using a survey questionnaire. Data are only available from

    countries that returned the questionnaires AND where data in those countries are

    available. No attempts have been made to standardise any of this information with

    regards to commodity names used, units, or the systems of reporting. These data are

    therefore presented in the Yearbook exactly as they have been returned on the

    questionnaire.

    Waste flow data collated from public sources including the Eurostat waste statistics database, the Eurostat Comext database and other National databases and publications

    (from National Environment Agencies, Ministries of Environment, etc).

    Case studies utilising publically available datasets to examine the potential for the supply of raw materials from secondary sources for ten mineral commodities.

    The following sections represent some outline instructions on how the Yearbook works and

    includes some screenshots to guide the user.

    3 Front pages

    3.1 Accessing the Yearbook from Minerals4EU portal The link shown above will take the user direct to the Yearbooks Menu Page but if the user accesses the home page of Minerals4EU Portal there is a link to the Yearbook as shown:

    3.2 Yearbook menu page The menu page of the Yearbook gives the user four options:

    To view data for both primary minerals and mineral-based waste flows by country

    To view data for only primary minerals by commodity

    To view data for mineral-based waste flows by category

    To view case studies on commodities from waste and other yearbook-related documents

    From the main page of the

    Minerals4EU portal

    access to the Yearbook is from

    this button.

    The user may choose

    one of the 4 options

    shown.

    Below the first three options are drop down lists enabling the user to choose what they wish to view. Open these lists using the downward pointing arrows, select the item you wish to

    view and then click the view button.

    The front page also includes buttons to access the text for acknowledgements and disclaimer which appear in pop up boxes. These boxes can be closed using either the cross in the top right corner or the close button in the bottom right corner.
