The country’s mining sector exports reached USD 2.81bn in the first six months of 2021, jumping 52% year-on-year, according to the Turkish Exporters Assembly’s (TIM) Mining Sector Council.

Exports of metallic mining groups and natural stones rose to over USD 1m during the same period,

Rustem Cetinkaya, the council’s head, said that in the first six-month period, the upward trend continued as in the previous months.

With the increase in unit prices, the mining sector is reaping high export revenues, even if the same tonnage is delivered, he added.
