Data on mineral resources are used to acquire information on stock of main natural resources and mining and quarrying thereof in Latvia.

Definitions

The deposits of mineral resources have been roughly demarcated and the quality and quantity of the useful minerals are also roughly evaluated. To develop a project for the output of minerals, a supplementary geological exploration is necessary as well as the exploration of the qualities of the useful minerals.

The degree of exploration of mineral deposits is sufficient for the creation of a project for the utilisation of the deposit and the qualities of the useful minerals are explored to such a degree as to allow the creation of a technological processing scheme.
