Course Description
Description: 

Mining is the 3rd largest industry in British Columbia, after manufacturing and construction, and employs 14,000 people directly. The complex geology of British Columbia has provided the province with a rich and varied mineral endowment, from hard-rock minerals, such as gold, copper, zinc, silver and lead, to fossil fuel resources such as coal, natural gas and oil. British Columbia is recognized as a World leader for its' expertise in this field.  Sustainable Resources 12: Mining is a new interactive, online course from the British Columbia Curriculum. It is designed to enhance your knowledge and expertise in this field.
