Abstract/Summary This paper deals with the time-path of the prices of mineral products, and with the economic viability of individual mining projects. Mineral products may be final demand goods, such as gold, but more commonly they are intermediate goods, such as copper, aluminium and coal, which are used in the production of final demand goods. This means that the demand for these goods is a derived demand.
