We just don't dig them up because China can do it a lot cheaper since they don't worry about silly things like environmental damage.

Or worker safety.

But hey, if you want to roll back to the first industrial age, please do.

Rest assured that China digs it a lot cheaper because even in 1995 in the USA mining was immensely more regulated than in China today.
