“Mining Rocks!” website

Mining supports the very foundation of our economy. From the stone and gravel used to build roads and lay foundations for homes and buildings, to coal and uranium used to generate more than half of the nation’s electricity, to the copper wire that connects billions of computers to a global social and commercial network, our economy and way of life depend on the vital resources provided by mining.

We developed the “Mining Rocks!” website as part of our goal to make quality resources available to teachers, parents, and others looking for educational curriculum pertaining to mining and minerals.
