Generally speaking, the Latin American mining industry continued to be highly dependent on foreign markets. Although local consumption of some products denotes a growing market, Latin America exports the bulk of its ore, especially metals. With respect to mineral fuels, the coal mined is mainly for domestic consumption, but on the other hand almost all the petroleum produced in Venezuela, and small amounts produced in other countries, are exported.
