Bauxite, Jamaica's main mineral resource, is a vital element of the country's economy.

Jamaica's mineral industry is mainly based on bauxite but it also includes industrial minerals such as gypsum, marble, silica sand and clays, besides a thriving sand and gravel industry.

The benefits of the bauxite and alumina industries are mainly financial. By paying high wages to their employees they have made poor agricultural districts more prosperous. By paying royalties on the amount of bauxite they mine, and income tax on the profits they make, they have enabled the Jamaican government to undertake development projects which would otherwise have been impossible. In addition, industries linked with bauxite are coming into being. Two examples are the manufacture of caustic soda which, as we have seen, is used in producing alumina, and the manufacture of aluminum products such as furniture.
