The dominant minerals are coal, natural gas, manganese, mercury, aluminium, strontium and so on. The proven coal reserves are 3.3 billion tons, which makes Chongqing an important base for coal production in southern China. The proven reserves of natural gas are 320 billion cubic meters, of which the exploitation of Wolong river gas field in Dianjiang ranks first in the country.
