Where Are Minerals Found?

Answer

Minerals are found in the earth's crust in ores and in rocks. They are found everywhere in the world and are mined at designated places referred to as mines. Minerals grow in areas where there are low and moderate temperatures during the consolidation of a rock from sediment or in solid rocks under heat and pressure.
