Text of report by Xinhua news agency

Lhasa, 22nd January: China's Tibet Autonomous Region is scheduled to
enlarge its mining industry, taking advantage of its rich mineral
resources.

The autonomous region is determined to make mining the mainstay of its
economy, and hopes that development of local mining will be an effective
way to help the poor.

Tibet's eastern part will focus on copper mining, the western and northern
parts on gold and boron mining, and the middle part will give priority to
exploitation of chromium.

The autonomous region has used many means, including setting up a regional
exploitation fund for mineral resource prospecting and for attracting
foreign funds, and increase development funds for the mineral industry.

Tibet also attaches great importance to the use of scientific developments
in the mining industry. It has set out to perfect administrative
regulations on mining industry development, in a bid to make full use of
its mineral resources.
