Raw Material Data (RMD)

Annual panel data of mines around the world since 1980, compiled by IntierraRMG now part of S&P Global. See

According to Berman et al. (2017), the dataset includes variables such as
  • whether a mine is active, 
  • the year production started, 
  • the specific minerals produced, 
  • the total production for each of them
  • ownership structure and characteristics of the mines
  • extraction methods

  • small-scale mines, and those that are illegally operated, are not included.

    Used by Berman et al. (2017) (and see their footnote 12).
