Abstract : The requirements for a non-fuel minerals policy planning process are examined in terms of how non-fuel minerals issues are brought to executive and legislative attention and the adequacy of data collection and analysis. The behavior of the policy process is examined, particularly in terms of the reports to Congress under the Mining and Minerals Policy Act of 1970. Recommendations are made for strengthening the existing policy process by consolidating the non-fuel minerals data and analysis function, assuring that non-fuel minerals supply system concerns are included in the decision process, considering elimination of those provisions of the Mining and Minerals Policy Act of 1970 that relate to the reporting process, and establishing procedures for executive- and congressional-level attention to the annual evaluation of the non-fuel minerals supply system. p4
