The list, released late Thursday by US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, included, among others:

* Copper, nickel, cobalt, aluminum, lead, zinc and tin ores and concentrates

* Copper anodes and refined cathodes, unwrought refined lead, nickel mattes

* Cobalt and nickel sulfates

* Chromium, tungsten, manganese, titanium and niobium ores and concentrates

* Molybdenum ores and concentrates, both roasted and unroasted, and molybdenum oxides

* Silicon, selenium, scandium and yttrium

* Gold, silver and platinum group metals in various non-monetary forms

* Ferroalloys (ferrochrome, ferromanganese, ferrosilicon, ferrotungsten, ferrovanadium)

* Waste and scrap products of various base metals

* Iron and steel sections, iron cast pipe and tube, stainless pipe and tube and other steel products

"As a result of China's retaliation [to previous US tariffs of 25% on around $34 billion worth of Chinese imports] and failure to change its practices, the President has ordered USTR to begin the process of imposing tariffs of 10% on an additional $200 billion of Chinese imports," Lighthizer said in a statement.

"This is an appropriate response under the authority of Section 301 to obtain the elimination of China's harmful industrial policies. USTR will proceed with a transparent and comprehensive public notice and comment process prior to the imposition of final tariffs, as we have for previous tariffs," he said.

The full list of products affected, a total of 6,031 tariff subheadings ranging from frogs' legs to baseball gloves and cashmere goat hair to ceramic tiles, can be found here: https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/301/2018-0026%20China%20FRN%207-10-2018_ 0.pdf
