What is mineral conservation?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mineral conservation is the practice of restrained mining and use of minerals as products and not over-extracting minerals to a wasteful point. It is widely considered a “sounds good on paper” concept as the actual application of the practice is easier said than done in some mining company’s eyes. We have been consuming minerals at an ever increasing rate as the demand grows and grows. The idea of mineral conservation is still somewhat ambiguous as nations need a monolithic supply of minerals to sustain themselves. At the rate we are mining there is a bleak future for coming generations. In sum; mineral conservation is more an attempt at conservation or learning how to appropriately conserve without jeopardizing the needs of a nation.
