Gradual depletion of deposits of some kind and increasing costs in the extractive industry influence negatively also the economic production in other fields of material production. Relieving the national economy of this influence requires attracting new sources (as a kind) of raw materials and energy in the economic circuit and, at the same time, diminishing the specific consumption in the processing industry and other activity fields. Such changes will inevitably influence the environment, worsening the living conditions, even on a world scale. The market will never solve the environmental problems in the mineral resources exploitation sector. Therefore, countries try to prevent this phenomenon by imposing taxes on pollution, but the amount of taxes or the taxation procedure is a question of economic policy for every country.
