Mining and hydrocarbons contribute significantly to the Peruvian economy. The extractive sector generated 75% of total Peruvian exports in the first half of 2012 and accounted for 5% of GDP. In 2010, Peru occupied a leading position in the global production of the following mineral commodities such as copper (second after Chile), gold (sixth after China, Australia, South Africa, the United States, and Russia), lead (fourth after China, Australia, and the United States), molybdenum (fourth after China, the United States, and Chile), silver (first followed by China and Mexico), tin (third after China and Indonesia), and zinc (second after China). The country is a significant producer of oil and gas. Ongoing development of natural gas and condensates in the Camisea basin is boosting the extractive sector contribution to Peru’s economy and to the government’s fiscal revenues.
