Conservation of minerals :

  • We are rapidly consuming mineral resources that required millions of years to be created and concentrated.
  • Geological processes of mineral formation are so slow that the rates of replenishment are infinitely small in comparison to the present rates of consumption.
  • Mineral resources are finite and non renewable.
  • Rich mineral deposits are our country’s extremely valuable possessions.
  • Continued extraction of ores leads to increasing costs as mineral extraction comes from greater depths along with decrease in quality.
  • Efforts have to be made to use our mineral resources in a planned and sustainable manner.
  • Improved technologies need to be evolved to allow use of low grade ores at low costs.
  • Recycling of metals, using scrap metals and other substitutes are steps in conserving our mineral resources for future.
