South Korea does not have extensive mineral resources. The output of anthracite coal, the country’s leading mineral resource, was 4.2 million metric tons in 1999. The production of coal, as most other minerals, has declined since the mid-1980s. Zinc ore output was 9,500 metric tons, and small amounts of graphite, iron ore, lead, tungsten, gold, silver, and kaolin (a fine clay) were extracted. Limestone mining is increasing, with much of it used in the production of cement.
