Important Minerals and Their Largest Producing Countries

Minerals and ores are commodities, the raw inputs used to make everything we use, from intermediate goods to finished products.

These resources are found on the earth among reserves yet to be extracted. Renewable resources are those with reserves not diminished by use, including solar power, wind power, and hydroelectric energy.

On the other hand, non-renewable resources like fossil fuels, minerals, and ores have limited resources and decrease day to day after mining. Here is the list of minerals and their largest producing countries.
