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.
