    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.
