Role of Mining in National Economies: Mining Contribution Index (5th edition)

  • Share

ICMM's Mining Contribution Index (MCI) synthesises into a single number – and an associated ranking – the significance of the mining sector’s contribution to national economies. This provides an indication of the relative importance of mining to the economic life of a country. The MCI is designed to improve the understanding of the role of mining in national economies; it illustrates the importance of good mineral resource governance if governments are to ensure that mineral wealth translates into broad-based economic and social progress.
