Non-ferrous metal production in the United Kingdom by type 2012-2018

Tungsten production in the United Kingdom amounted to 1,200 metric tons in 2018. This far outweighed the UK production of other non-ferrous ores that year such as silver and gold. Since tin deposits in Asia and South America were discovered more than a century ago, tin mining in the UK has been virtually non-existent, despite it's rich history in the Cornwall region. However, production is forecast to pick up as tech companies and car manufacturers search to find more ethical sources of metal.
