DID YOU KNOW THAT--IN ONE YEAR--MOST AMERICANS USE OVER A HUNDRED NEWLY MINED MINERALS.  THESE MINERALS GO INTO EVERYDAY ITEMS, LIKE CELL-PHONES, LAPTOPS, CARS, LIFESAVING MEDICAL-DEVICES, AND EVEN BUILDINGS.  ACCORDING TO THE "NATIONAL MINING ASSOCIATION", MINERALS FROM ALUMINA TO ZINC ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE PRODUCTS THAT WE USE EVERY DAY:  WE DON'T SEE THEM--BUT WE COULDN'T GET ALONG WITHOUT THEM.  MINERALS ALSO CREATE JOBS, POWER THE ECONOMY, AND STRENGTHEN NATIONAL-SECURITY.  THE U-S PRODUCES SUCH MINERALS AS GOLD, IRON-ORE, COPPER, AND ZINC.  SOME OF THE MOST-INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES--LIKE WIND-TURBINES, SOLAR-PANELS, LAPTOPS, AND SMART-PHONES--USE THESE AND OTHER MINERALS.  INDEED, A TYPICAL HOUSEHOLD-COMPUTER USES MORE THAN 66 MINERALS.  THAT'S WHY THE ASSOCIATION BELIEVES THAT THE NATION NEEDS PUBLIC-POLICIES TODAY THAT WILL LET U-S-PRODUCERS MEET TOMORROW'S MINERAL-NEEDS.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "MINERALS-MAKE-LIFE"-DOT-ORG.
