From iron, which is produced by China on a 900 million metric ton-scale, to rhodium, which has an annual production from Chile totaling 25 metric tons, the elements are produced either by the mining and refinement of ores or by extraction from brine pools — as in the case of bromine which Israel produces from the Dead Sea (165,000 metric tons).

Data from the US Geological Survey, 2009. 

Location of the main producers of elements - 900 to 55 million metric tons Location of the main producers of elements - 55 million to 266,000 metric tonsLocation of the main producers of elements - 266,000 to 3,900 metric tonsLocation of the main producers of elements - 3,900 to 25 metric tons
