Why do we need to conserve mineral resources? Explain any three reasons.


We need to conserve mineral resources for the following reasons:

  1. Mineral Sources being found on the earth’s crust are limited in number.
  2. They are exhaustible. (They can be used and utilised but cannot be renewed.)
  3. If we don’t conserve them, they run out and the future generation yet to come may never know of them.
