Notes Data are the world production of arsenic trioxide in terms of arsenic content. Data are not available for the years 1906–09. Data are from the MR and the MYB. Data are world mine production of asbestos. Data for the years 1900–04 include only Canada and the United States. For the years 1904–12, data include Canada, the United States, and Russia. World asbestos mine production data are from the MR and the MYB. World production data for the years 1938–2004 were from the MYB. World production data for the years 1938–87 represent the total quantity of natural industrial diamonds that were produced annually throughout the world. World production data for the years 1988–2000 represent the total quantity of natural and synthetic industrial diamonds that were produced annually throughout the world. World production data for the years 1900–37 were not available. Production data for the United States were not included in world production for the years 1986–94. World mine production is based on a compilation of available country data published in the MR and the MYB and generally reflects the copper content of concentrates, precipitates, and electrowon copper. For some countries, including the United States, recoverable copper content is used. For other countries, such as Chile, data includes copper content of non-duplicative mine and metal products produced from domestic ores and concentrates. This data set was originally derived from the MR and the MYB series, but data for the years 1940–85, may contain revisions to specific countries that reflect new understandings of production, especially for the former Soviet Union as reported by Strishkov (1984, p. 8). World gold production data for the years 1900–26 are from reported estimates by Ridgeway (1929). World gold production data for the years 1927–2002 are from the MYB in the “Salient gold statistics” and “Gold: World production by country” tables. Updated values for world gold production for the years 1929–50 reflect revised estimates by the USGS gold commodity specialist for some countries. World production of pig iron was recorded from the MYB and the MR for the years 1910–2004. World production tables changed to production by principal countries tables for the years 1910–22 for pig iron. A graph of world production shows no sudden jump in quantity moving from 1922 to the 5 following years, 1923–28. This indicates that most major producers were probably included in the “principal countries” category. World production data were not available for the years 1900–09. World production data for the years 1900–2004 represent the recoverable silver content of precious-metal ores that were extracted from mines throughout the world. World production data were recorded from the MR and the MYB.
