Raw Materials & Minerals


Raw Materials & Minerals


Humans consume a gargantuan amount of natural resources, such as minerals, every year. Have you ever wondered where these minerals comes from? Not all countries have a wealth of every type of material we need for cars, electronics, and other useful items. For example, if we need aluminium, we better hop a flight to Guinea where we can find 27% of the world's aluminium. Here is a guide to where you can find all of the minerals on the planet.

TASK

  1. On a blank world map, add symbols to show the distribution of:

    • Aluminium

    • Copper

    • Gold

    • Uranium

  2. Make your symbols proportional in size, i.e. for each 1% of world share, the symbol should be 1mm wide

  3. Write a paragraph describing the distribution of each resource. Use continent and country names, regions, compass words and data in your description.

  4. Outline 4 consequences of the distribution of these resources. Explain each point fully.
