Geology and Natural Resources

What are Natural Resources and where do We Find Them?

Look around you. Where did all of the stuff you use every day come from?  Are you sitting on a plastic chair? Do you have rock countertops in your kitchen and bathrooms? Do you use pencils to write with? Almost everything we use comes from our natural resources, and many of those natural resources come from under the surface of the earth. Rocks, minerals, water, oil and gas are all geological resources that we depend on every day and geologists are often responsible for locating and developing plans for extracting these resources.
