Bolivia was one of the world's leading producer of tin. However, the market for tin declined in the 1980s, and it is no longer so important in Bolivia's economy. Large reserves of lithium have also been discovered in Bolivia but extracting the lithium had not commenced by 2014.
4. Which mountain in the Cordillera Real mountain area is one of the more difficult ascents in the area and wasn't ascended until 1928?
