Mineral resource development requires expertise in all fields of science. This resource consists of lab activities that mimic the mining process. It introduces rocks and minerals as non-renewable resources, environmental assessments and impacts at mine sites, the value of minerals in daily life, and the techniques involved in ore extraction, processing, and refining.
