Turkey supplies 98% of borate that the EU needs but 99% of all the large-size mining companies in the country are either owned by an EU or a Canadian-American company. Turks make hardly any money from borate minarels although boron compounds are not found in abundance elsewhere in the world, and it is widely used in almost every electronic, medical and chemical goods.
