oreton
main
Show statistics for this fieldTotal tons of ore based on total production, reserves, and resources at the lowest possible cutoff grade, in millions of metric tons.
cugrd
main
Show statistics for this fieldAverage grade of copper for the deposit, as percent of metal in ore. Zero value means the grade (always for byproducts) was unavailable.
cogrd
main
Show statistics for this fieldAverage grade of cobalt for the deposit, as percent of metal in ore. Zero value means the grade (always for byproducts) was unavailable.
aggrd
main
Show statistics for this fieldAverage grade of silver for the deposit, as grams per metric ton of ore. Zero value means the grade (always for byproducts) was unavailable.
