Indigenous representation: Indigenous Peoples accountedFile Size: 1MB. SINCE the beginning of this century the non-ferrous mineral industry has contributed $17,,, to the economic growth of Canada. To contemplate the vast amount of investment capital required and the resultant beneficial distribution of these billions of dollars for labour, transportation, supplies, taxes and dividends, challenges the imagination. NON‐FERROUS METALS INDUSTRY (). A joint report by the ICSG, ILZSG and INSG, providing information on fiscal measures applied to mining and metals across various jurisdictions with a particular focus on copper, lead, zinc and nickel. Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Forest Products, Building Materials, Construction, and Nonferrous Metals (ITAC 5) Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Steel (ITAC 7) Committee members are senior executives representing a broad cross-section of an industry and serve two-year terms.

In the US, the metal recycling industry generated $64 billion in and recovered $40 billion worth of nonferrous metals like aluminum, .
