The Minerals Education Coalition (MEC) of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration Inc. (SME) has released the 2014 “Minerals Baby” graphic. Each year, the amount of minerals and energy fuels needed for the average American is incorporated into the iconic graphic. This year’s statistics reflect an increase of more than 24,000 lb. during a lifetime when compared with the previous year’s per capita usage.
