The Canadian Shield: Natural Resources
Here are some Web
sites to help you with your research.
Start a Mine
Mining is the most important industry in the Canadian Shield. At this
Web site, you can find out how to start your own mine through a simulated
activity. You’ll find out why minerals are so important and what
minerals and metals are in your own home. If you’re interested in
working in the mining industry, there is a mining careers link, too.
Water, water, everywhere—that’s what most Canadians think.
It’s true that Canada has the largest supply of fresh water in the
world. But what most Canadians don’t realize is that even with so
much water, we cannot take it for granted. At this Web site, you’ll
learn why we need to preserve our water supply and what Canadians should
do to help.
