The paper analyses the optimal growth of a small economy that extracts an exhaustible resource both for domestic production and export purposes. It is shown that when the exogenously given resource price is constant, extraction for export will stop in finite time whereas extraction for domestic production will continue. Yet, if the resource price increases exponentially, extraction will continue to support both sectors.
