    Apparently the availability of many minerals and metals from ore deposits is reducing in the same sort of way as oil, in that projected rates of extraction will use up all the known deposits within a few decades. For example, 25% of all known copper deposits have already been mined.

    I suppose it's not quite the same as oil, as metals can be recycled to a large extent, and in fifty years or whenever there will probably be ample supplies available from the asteroid belt or somewhere.

    But failing that, we'll have to wait a hundred million years or two until continental drift has turned over a load of new crust to mine.
