Although production from stateowned enterprises is significant and growing, the extent of state ownership in mining is still very much less than is the case with oil and gas. Beyond the larger and mid-sized mining companies, there are huge numbers of smaller miners, ranging from quoted companies with two or three mines to small family enterprises. Some produce for international markets and some just for local markets. The nature of the mineral product and the form of its occurrence play an important part in determining what products such producers focus on.
