The metal mining industry includes facilities engaged primarily in exploring for metallic minerals, developing mines, and ore mining. These ores are valued chiefly for the metals they contain, which are recovered for use as constituents of alloys, chemicals, pigments, or other products. The industry sector also includes ore dressing and beneficiating operations. The SIC 10 group consists of: SIC 101 - Iron Ores; SIC 102 - Copper Ores; SIC 103 - Lead and Zinc Ores; SIC 104 - Gold and Silver Ores; SIC 106 - Ferroalloy Ores, Except Vanadium; SIC 108 - Metal Mining Services; and SIC 109 - Miscellaneous Metal Ores.
