List Of Some Natural Resources And Their Location In Nigeria.


Natural resources are commonly defined as the sources of wealth which appear naturally and are used by humans. They have a few classifications, which depend on different principles. The most popular out of them is renewability – according to this one, the natural resources are classified as renewable and non-renewable. Here are the examples of natural resources: renewable resources are animals and plants, while non-renewable resources are minerals, soils, and fossil fuels. Non-renewable resources are usually found in very limited amounts, and Earth can take ages to produce the new ones.
