China in only a short period rose to be the number one producer and consumer of steel. Not only this, but they are top competitors in many different producing and consuming categories with many different metals such as copper, aluminium, tin, lead, zinc, magnesium, iron ore, and coal.
Steel, of course, is not mined but is manufactured from mined iron ore. China leads the world in production of the following: Aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barite, bismuth, cadmium, cement, fluorspar, gallium, germanium, gold, graphite, gypsum, indium, iron ore, lead, lime, magnesium, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, ammonia, phosphate rock, salt, silicon, strontium, talc, tin, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, coal, and rare earths. Of these by volume, coal is probably the largest. Of the metals, iron ore is almost certainly the “most” mined commodity in China.
The US imports most of the items on the list above from China. Exceptions include gold, mercury, molybdenum, phosphate rock, talc, and coal.
