eEstimated. pPreliminary. rRevised. -- Zero.
1Totals and estimated data are rounded to no more than three significant digits; may not add to totals shown.
2Includes data available through July 8, 2014.-
3Ilmenite is also produced in Canada and South Africa, but this output is not included here because most of it is duplicative-
of output reported under -Titaniferous slag,- and the rest is used for purposes other than production of titanium commodities,
principally steel furnace flux and heavy aggregate.-
4Small amounts of titanium minerals were reportedly produced in various countries, but information is inadequate to
make reliable estimates of output levels.
5Does not include production of unbeneficiated anatase ore.
6Reported figure.
7Includes rutile to avoid disclosing company proprietary data. Rounded to one significant digit.
8Estimate based on import statistics from trading partners (primarily China and Japan).
9Includes U.S. production, of ilmenite, leucoxene, and rutile rounded to one significant digit to avoid disclosing company
proprietary data.
10Included with ilmenite to avoid disclosing company proprietary data.
11Slag is also produced in China, Norway, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Vietnam, but this output is not included under -Titaniferous-
slag- to avoid duplicative reporting.
