The mineral section develops an economic policy for the Norwegian Mineral Sector.

The section is responsible for following up the Governments Mineral Strategy and administrating the Norwegian Mineral Act. Critical Raw Materials are essential for a green industrial shift, sustainable value chains, the defence industry and a digital society. The unit is responsible for following up Norways participation in the American initiative Minerals Security Partnership (MSP) and follow the EU Commissions proposal for a Critical Raw Materials Act. We also participate in the EU Commissions Raw Materials Supply Group and contribute in the work with several industrial partnerships.
