Minerals in Pakistan

  1. 1. MINERALS  A solid, naturally occurring inorganic substance  A naturally occurring, stable at room temperature, definite chemical formula, abiogenic, ordered atomic arrangement  Different from rock, which an aggregate of minerals or non-minerals, indefinite composition
  2. 2. MINERAL IN PAKISTAN  Extensive Reservoirs  Mostly unexploited  Area of 600,000 sq. km has potential for metallic and non-metallic minerals  Inputs for industry as Iron, Zinc, Copper, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Lead, Chromite, etc.  Vast potential of multi-colored granite, marble and other stones
  3. 3. CONTINUE….  Contribute 0.5% GDP only  52 main minerals under exploitation though on small scale  Major production is coal, rock salt and other industrial & construction minerals  Value addition in the mineral sector is focused on Limestone, Coal, Gypsum, Sulphur, Crude Oil, and Natural Gas
  4. 4. CONTINUE….  Mining industry dominated by;  Punjmin (8 minerals)  Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation (11)  FATA Development Corporation (10)  Balochistan Development Authority (Flourite)  KP Development Authority (4)  AK Mineral & Industrial Development Corp. (12)  Pakistan Steel (Limestone)
  5. 5. PROBLEMS  Weak Mineral Departments  Mining vs Environment  Understaffing of regional directorates  Lack of technical know-how  Lack of interest of foreign investors  Lack of interest of environmentalists  Capital for Exploration
