Minerals Make Life - an initiative created by the National Mining Association - has recently developed an infographic explaining the importance of the mineral zinc. Many consumers do not know it, but minerals are present in products we all use on a regular basis. That includes the mineral zinc, which is used in sunscreen, swimming pools, electric vehicles and many other products as noted on the infographic.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, domestic zinc mine production slightly increased in 2013; however, the United States remains 74 percent import reliant for zinc. Imported zinc primarily comes from Canada, Mexico, and Peru.
