Problem

Neglect by research of natural resource product expansion

Nature:
Research into new procedures for expanding production of the world's natural resources is not inclusive and there is no computerized catalogue of data which includes and delineates the amounts and distribution of the earth's resources. Research tends to emphasize large-scale enterprises, overlooking the development and coordinated application of techniques needed in small-scale enterprises or in the more austere economies. Research in mining procedures tends to stress the extraction of the main products, neglecting the development of techniques which would make full use of the by-products.
