4 Vale, the only reporting coal company, had not yet begun production.
5 Rio Tinto, the only reporting company mining "heavy sands" or "mineral sands" had not yet begun production in 2008. Figures differ from company data sheet because here profit taxes are reported separately from "surface tax", which is captured in the "other receipts" column.
6 Production figures are for Ilmenite and Rutile concentrates of Titanium (see USGS Mozambique 2008 Minerals Yearbook p.31.6). According to the Directorate of Mines, Kenmare Moma Mining produced 140,515.2 tons of Ilmenite, 26,346.6 tons of Zircon and 8,782.2 tons of Rutile in 2008.
