Nevada, but also other states like Alaska, California, and Colorado have gold It is used for coinage, jewelry, other arts, and common basis for monetary policies. • It was in the first part of January, 1848, when the gold was discovered in California • Gold is mined from mountains and found in river beds. Heavy equipment is used for mountains • Mining • Everyone has the right to gold as long as you own the property.
Chemically, gold is a transition metal and a group 11 element. It is one of the least reactive solid chemical elements. The metal therefore occurs often in free elemental (native) form, as nuggets or grains in rocks, in veins and in alluvial deposits. Less commonly, it occurs in minerals as gold compounds, usually with tellurium. Gold has been a valuable and highly sought-after precious metal for coinage, jewelry, and other arts since long before the beginning of recorded history. Gold standards have been the most common basis for monetary policies throughout human history, being widely supplanted by fiat currency only in the late 20th century. Gold has also been frequently linked to a wide variety of symbolisms and ideologies. A total
Iron Iron is a non-renewable resource. How it is used. Iron is used in a variety of products from pots, pans, fences, and ornamental items, but the vast majority of iron is used in the production of steel, used as a structural material in the construction of large projects like bridges and buildings, in fasteners, cookware, automotive parts, trains and railways, and as reinforcing in concrete.In the United States, almost all of the iron ore that is mined is used for making steel. The same is true throughout the world. Raw iron by itself is not as strong and hard as needed for construction and other purposes. Iron ore was discovered in 1866 in the Mesabi Range, Minnesota. Iron ore is found in the mid Atlantic region, the Great Plains, and out west. Iron allows us to build high because the steel makes things stronger How it’s mined/obtained Iron ore is generally mined in the form of one of two different minerals. The first mineral is hematite, and the other is magnetite. To begin mining iron ore, a geological survey must first be taken of an area to determine whether substantive deposits of either of those iron ore minerals are present. The geological survey also determines the best method for mining the mineral. Most iron ore that is extracted today is mined using open-pit surface mines. It is possible, however, to mine iron ore in underground tunnel mines. Most deposits of it simply don't make doing so practical, especially when it is much easier and less expensive to operate a surface mine. Anyone who has Iron on their property has the right to it.
Timber • By Garren • Timber is used for a lot of things like,. sandals, chairs, buildings, and many many more. • Timber was discovered when man first came on to this world a long time ago. • We use timber because it is kind of easy to get, and it has many uses. • Timber is obtained be going to a forest and with a chain saw or a normal saw and cut the trees down and send it to a mill. • Just about every has access to the resources timber because it is just about everywhere. • trees are the only renewable resource in the U.S because after we cut it down we can just plant another one. Locations of timber in the U.S
Mercury is located in Colorado in the US. Mercury is used to make thermometers, barometers, and scientific instruments. Mercury was discovered in antiquity, and was known to the ancient Chinese, Hindus, and Egyptians but was not recognized and the element the year that it was discovered is before the 15oos. We use mercury to have supplies like thermometers to tell if we are sick or not. Mercury by Brooke Dyer Mercury was obtained in mines we find them by digging mercury with picks to get them out of the mine. The government has the right to mercury because its dangerous, but other people could buy to if they wanted to. Mercury is a no renewable resource.
Copper By: Justin Green • Copper was first discovered in California in 1840, in Los Angeles Country. • Copper is used in building and construction. • Copper Ore being loaded into a 300 ton truck for transport to the crusher. • Machine transporting and handling the copper cathodes that were removed from the electrominning cells. That's it, the rest is manufacturing products from the pure copper. • Copper has been in use at least 10,000 years. • It dropped to US$2.40/lb • People that discovers it
Bauxite Bauxite is mined in Arkansas in the U.S. and in other countries. Bauxite is used in cement, chemicals, face makeup, soda cans, dishwashers, siding for houses, and other aluminum products. It is recycled so that it can be used over again. The reason we use Bauxite is Because it’s an Every day Resource. Where Bauxite is located Bauxite was identified or discovered in 1821 Raw Bauxite
Uranium By: Dimitri Uranium is used to strengthen steel, in nuclear weapons, and to produce nuclear power. Uranium is found all over the Midwest, northeastern Washington, and a little in the eastern part of the usually found in uranium bearing ore. Uranium is a non-renewable resource. It was discovered(in the USA) in 1898. There are four common ways to extract Uranium they are open pit, underground, bare hole, and in-situ leach (ISL). Uranium is owned by private companies. People use Uranium because it can withstand nuclear reaction and because it is readily available to mine, about as common as tin in the earth’s crust.
Kyle Tompkins Tungsten
Where is it located? A hard, rare metal under standard conditions when uncombined, tungsten is a metal found naturally on Earth only in chemical compounds. It was identified as a new element in 1781, and first isolated as a metal in 1783. How is it obtained? Tungsten is often found in conjunction with other metals such as wolframite (the element in which tungsten was first discovered whose name means "devourer of tin") and scheelite.
What was it used for? Tungsten is used in Rings and light bulbs. When it was discovered ? It was identified as a new element in 1781, and first isolated as a metal in 1783. . Why do we use it? To make our lives easier. Who has rights to it? Every one unless it is not on your land.
Is it renewable or recyclable? Absolutely not renewable. These are metallic elements found in the earth and exist in limited quantities. Once mined they do not renew themselves. They can, of course, be recycled but not renewed.
Petroleum By Tucker Moyer
Petroleum was found in Pennsylvania • Petroleum is distilled into a range of hydrocarbons of fuels.(gasoline, diesel • Petroleum was discovered in 1546 • We need it because we used it to fuel or cars • We drill for it then process it • The oil people has the rights • Its non-renewable

Nickel By Robert Clark Nickel is mined in south-eastern Pennsylvania in the county of Lancaster Nickels uses : In the United States, large amounts of nickel (42% of consumption in 2001) are used in the specialty steel industry for stainless steel and related alloys. In 1913, Harry Brearly, an English scientist, was the first to produced stainless steel, when he accidentally discovered that the addition of chromium to steel makes the steel resistant to staining. Today, stainless steel also contains some molybdenum, titanium and nickel, to increase its resistance to corrosion. Thirty-eight percent of annual nickel use is in nonferrous alloys (or mixed with metals other than steel) and super alloys (metal mixtures designed to withstand extremely high temperatures and/or pressures, or to have high electrical conductivity). Nickel is used as a coating on other metals to slow down corrosion. Nickel coatings accounts for 14% of nickel use. The remaining 6% of the annual nickel use is for a variety of purposes including the production of coins, nickel-cadmium and nickel-metal hydride batteries; as a catalyst for certain chemical reactions; and, as a colorant, nickel is added to glass to give it a green color. The U.S. 5-cent piece is called a "nickel" because it only contains 25% nickel. The other 75% is copper. Rechargeable nickel-hydride batteries are widely used for cellular phones, video cameras, and other electronic devices. Nickel-cadmium batteries are used primarily to power cordless tools and appliances. • Best guess for Nickel Discovery Date is 1751 We use nickel for things that gold and silver are to valuable for Nickel ore is usually mined from underground mine and some in open pit mine. The run-of-mine nickel ore will be sent to processing plant which includes crushing process, washing process, grinding process, concentration process. Firstly, the nickel ore mined will be conveyed to a stock bin before crushing and grinding. The nickel crushing and grinding plant can handle harder nickel ore as well as increasing the plant throughput. The outflow from the mill enters a vibrating screen and the oversize is directed to a CS series cone crusher before being returned to the mill. Screen undersize enters a ball mill/cyclone circuit before entering the flotation plant rougher cells. After crushing and grinding process, the nickel ore will be conveyed to flotation plant. Them the nickel ore will be sent to nickel smelter or nickel refinery. Anybody who finds nickel has a right to it Nickel is a non-renewable and a recyclable resource
Natural Gas (Methane) Where; Mostly Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma Uses; Fuel (heat, power, transportation, cooking) When; discovered in U.S. in 1626 Why; Environmentalist propaganda has indoctrinated people with the idea that natural gas is cleaner than petroleum even though it is itself a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide. The main reason for this idea is that most of the ‘environmentalists’ are also socialists/communists who hate the wealthy oil companies and spread fear of global warming that the government can use to grab more power, even though there is no evidence for global warming and it is illogical to begin with. How; most natural gas is drilled for like petroleum although a method called hydraulic fracturing uses toxic chemical injected in the ground to force the gas to the surface. Who can use it; natural gas is available to anyone however it is an inefficient industry due to unnecessary government regulations and attempted price control. Availability; there is no conclusive evidence proving how long it takes for natural gas to develop thermogenically, however there are many forms of life which produce methane gases and so it can be considered renewable.
Molybdenum Molybdenum is obtained by primary mines and by-product mines. Molybdenum is not proprietary so anyone has the right to use it. Molybdenum is alloyed with steel making it stronger and more highly resistant that is why we use it. Molybdenum was discovered in 1781 by Swedish scientist, Peter Hjelm Molybdenum is a recyclable resource because you can go in and melt it and make it into something new Molybdenum was located in Colorado west of Denver. New Mexico in Grant County. Idaho at The Thompson Creek Mine. Arizona at the Pima Mine, Mammoth St. Anthony, and the Total Wreck Mine. Montana 28 miles NW of Helena. Utah near Salt Lake City at The Bingham Canyon Mine. Molybdenum is used for tool steels, for things like bearings, dies, machining components; cast irons, for steel mill rolls, auto parts, crusher parts; super alloys for use in furnace parts, gas turbine parts, chemical processing equipment.
Zinc By: Jerod D. Wright Zinc was discovered in 1746 and discovered by Andreas Sigismund Marggraf (Germany). Zinc is a certain metal and that metal is Transition Metal. It is used for The sulphide is used in making luminous dials, X-ray and TV screens, paints and fluorescent lights. Zinc is also used for medical purposes like boosting your immune system and others. Zinc is a metal that is normally found in small amounts in nature. It is used in many commercial industries and can be released into the environment during mining and smelting (metal processing) activities. Zinc ores are being mined in more than 50 countries with Australia, Canada, China, Peru and the U.S.A. Zinc is a nonrenewable resource.
