This study examines the thesis about Western dependency on South african minerals. An analysis of world production, trade and consumption patterns leads to conclusions about South Africa's role as supplier, and possible alternatives in southern Africa and elsewhere. The study gives an up-to-date picture of the South African role as minerals supplier in the southern Africa region, and is at the same time an insightful review of one key element of the sanctions debate of the last decade.
