HES Mineral Resources Activity Name ________________________ The following minerals are examples of mineral resources. They are a very small fraction of the material that we mine from the earth’s crust. Study the list to determine what each grouping of minerals has in common and suggest a reason why we might extract each particular mineral as a resource. Be sure to move around the room and observe samples of the minerals on display. Mineral Chemical Formula Copper Cu Sulfur S Quartz SiO2 Olivine (Mg,Fe)2SiO4 Beryl Be3Al2(SiO3)6 Garnet (Fe,Mg,Mn)3Al2(SiO4)3 Musovite KAl2(AlSi3O10) (F,OH)2 Corundum Al2O3 Magnetite Fe3O4 Hematite Fe2O3 Rutile TiO2 Galena PbS2 Stibnite Sb2S3 Sphalerite ZnS Chalcopyrite CuFeS2 Realgar As4S4 Calcite CaCO3 Malachite Cu2CO3(OH)2 Azurite Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2 Gypsum CaSO4 Celestite SrSO4 Fluorite CaF2 Halite NaCl Actinolite Ca2(Mg,Fe)5Si8O22 Commonality?
