Conservation of mineral resources is essential because they are a country’s valuable possession. They are used as raw materials in many industries and help in the economic development of a nation. Three ways in which we can conserve minerals are

1. Minerals should be used in a planned and sustainable manner.

2. Technology should be upgraded to allow the use of low-grade ore at low costs.

3. Recycling of metals also results in the conservation of mineral resources.
