World mineral commodity database :
Minerals are the most important primary materials in industry and technology. Without them, economic development is meaningless. Minerals among natural reserves that the economy and life of human being are based on them have special properties. For example, they are not unlimited reserves and need huge investment, and their capital turnover takes a long time. Based on these conditions the mineral market is very important for producers, consumers, investors and executive managers. The prediction of future prices is based on the background of them. This situation requires a comprehensive database with the capability of updating the past prices. During the analysis of favorite product market, project policies, prices examinations, supply and demand of the product in the past periods are significant. Therefore, establishment of a World database, including production, consumption, exportation, importation, price, strategic reserves via statistical analyses capabilities is required. Parallel to this issue, the National Geoscience Database of Iran has prepared the mineral world market database to present the statistical data of mineral market and some useful information about each mineral.
