Potential value of the country’s mineral reserves registered nearly $7 billion rise during the recent years, the chairman of the board of IMIDRO announced.

The potential value of available reserves of 10 minerals including gold, iron ore, antimony, barite, coal, bauxite, lead, zinc, copper content, brine and rare earth elements are about $39 billion, he added.

Before the recent explorations, if invested, the added value of the discovered minerals was $774 billion, and by taking into account the value of new reserves (nearly$271billion), by converting existing mineral reserves into products, this figure will reach $1,045 billion, the chairman of the board of IMIDRO declared, referring to the added value resulting from the processing of existing mineral reserves.
