Our Case
  • Mineral resources Discovering Antarctica

    There are known reserves of oil and coal as well as mineral deposits in Antarctica, although detailed knowledge of these mineral deposits is sketchy. In the last 50 years of scientific research, no large deposits of mineralized rocks have been found. Mining in Antarctica would be very difficult, dangerous and expensive as the climate is so harsh, the ice is very thick and Antarctica is very

  • Mineral Resources of Antarctica USGS

Rather, an objective analysis is given of the present geologic information, aimed. at apprais­ ing the mineral resources of Antarctica. About 98 percent of the surface of Antarc­ tica is cove~red by ice. The

  • Critical Minerals Geoscience Australia

    For example, salt lakes in the Andes of South America are major sources of Li, a critical mineral. Potash (KCl) is critical to the economy of Australia due to its use in fertilisers, and yet the nation is largely dependent upon imported potash. To address Australia's opportunities for new resources of critical minerals Geoscience Australia undertook a study Geoscience Australia Record 2013/39

  • Which Continent Is The Richest In Natural Resources

    20/8/2018· Each of the seven continents of the world has diverse natural resources. Africa has the richest concentration of natural resources such as oil, copper, diamonds, bauxite, lithium, gold, hardwood forests, and tropical fruits. It is estimated that 30% of the earth’s mineral resources are found in the African continent. Additionally, Africa has the world’s biggest precious metal reserves on

  • Asia Mineral resources Britannica

    Asia Asia Mineral resources: Asia has enormous reserves of coal, amounting to nearly three-fifths of the world’s total, but they are unevenly distributed. The largest reserves are found in Siberia, the Central Asian republics, India, and especially China; Indonesia, Japan, and North Korea have smaller but nevertheless economically important reserves.

  • Mineral industry of Europe Wikipedia

    The European mining industry has a long tradition. Although Europe's mining earns for a small share of GDP, it provides a large and significant share of the world-wide production.. Before World War II, the economy of Europe remained largely on coal as its source as primary energy, with very little of the diversification into oil and gas that has already occurred on United States.

  • Africa’s Mineral Wealth May Just Have To Stay In The

    Some 30 percent of the world’s mineral reserves including platinum, gold, diamonds and coal are found in Africa, yet the continent still has high levels of poverty. Africa also has 10 percent of the world’s oil reserves and 8 percent of natural gas, according to the African Development Bank. Climate change is threatening the exploitation of these resources and more importantly of the non

  • Mineral Resources eurogeosurveys.org

    The MREG mission is to provide the best available mineral expertise and information based on the combined knowledge of member Geological Surveys, for policy, communication, value chain creation, public awareness and education purposes at European level, focusing mainly on strengthening the position of the European minerals industry towards resource sustainability and competitive growth. To

  • Global Mineral Resource Assessments USGS

    Mineral resource assessments provide a synthesis of available information about where mineral deposits are known and suspected in the Earth's crust, what commodities may be present, and amounts of undiscovered resources. After completing the first quantitative national mineral resource assessment in the 1990s, the USGS conducted a feasibility study to determine whether a global assessment was
