This paper integrated systematically the method of MFA, DEA, and the evaluation method of eco-efficiency, constructed an appraisement model of total factor mineral resources efficiency from the perspective of green growth. And it defined the indicator system of appraising total factor mineral resources efficiency. This paper gave an empirical research of total factor mineral resources efficiency, economic efficiency of mineral resources, environmental efficiency of mineral resources, and eco-efficiency of mineral resources, of Chinese provincial regions for the year 2012. Study results confirms: the appraisement model of total factor mineral resources efficiency of this paper, not only discussed the appraising problem of total factor mineral resources efficiency of the process of mineral resources using, but also brought economic value, environmental influence and ecological cost into appraising framework of total factor mineral resources efficiency; so it is a scientific and comprehensive method of appraising mineral resources efficiency, and is in conformity with green growth theory.
