The Repository of the International Raw Materials Observatory encompasses an extensive database which allows our members to analyse the global mineral raw materials sector, comprising both historical data and the latest trends.
As an exclusive service for our members, we save information compiled in the fortnightly publication “World Barometer” with a long-term view and make it searchable through different filters such as the field of interest, geographical area, commodity or publication date.

The Repository is a database of the documents collected in the course of the EU funded INTRAW project, as well as documents generated by the project participants. These documents cover the whole scope of the project. Some are held in digital form (most as PDF files) within the database itself and may be viewed online or downloaded for later use. Others are available online in digital form elsewhere and links are provided to these. Yet others are not available online but may exist as digital files or on paper within the INTRAW Observatory or in institutions or companies elsewhere.
In addition, the Repository saves sector-relevant information provided through multiple external sources by safeguarding the contents of the Observatory’s fortnightly publication “World Barometer” with a long-term view and making them searchable by different filters.
The Repository database provides a set of document discovery tools, allowing search and browse options. Documents are indexed by metadata elements (such as field of interest, geographical and commodity) and by keywords, and searchable abstracts are provided - often as abstracts or executive summaries taken directly from the individual documents or sources of information.
INTRAW documents are either of general interest or are in one of seven categories:
