Minerals

Minerals and their products are essential to modern-day living.  We need minerals because they are the essential raw materials for almost all goods we use.  They support the way we live today and the way we expect to live in the future as we address the many challenges facing society.  As we seek to produce minerals in a sustainable manner, the Geological Survey provides data, maps, interpretations and advice on matters related to minerals, their use and their development.  There is an old saying which says 'if it can't be grown it has to be mined' which remains true in today's rapidly changing world.  We explain the importance of minerals, why they are needed and connect everyday goods and objects to the raw materials which make them.

​​Our activities include the provision of Minerals information, representation at various bodies and working groups.
