Dig into the world of geology with the Rock On series Outrageous Ores introduces readers to what ores are, minerals that can be mined for profit. Chapters build concepts from the ground up, from atoms and elements to mineral formation and the everyday importance of the metals they contain. Readers will learn about prospecting, exploration, aboveground and underground mining, and extracting metals from ores. They will also learn about the importance of protecting the environment before and after mining and of recycling metals. Full-color photographs will draw in readers while the easy-to-read text breaks down complex concepts. A colorful world map of where ores are found spreads across two pages and an at-home experiment provides the opportunity for hands-on experience. Glossary words in bold, an index, and phonetic spellings for those hard-to-pronounce geologic terms enhance and supplement the text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
