I have decided to group these mineral resources according to the states, where they are found so that one can actually know which state has what mineral resources in the country.

Research has revealed that over 44 mineral resources are found in Nigeria presently nevertheless, crude oil is topping every other natural resource found in Nigeria, and it is one natural resource that has made up a large chunk of income in this country hence, sustained the economy of Nigeria.

Nigeria is known as the largest black nation the world over, and also known for the country’s vast deposit of mineral resources.

Nigeria, as at today, is among the top exporters of oil in the world. Besides the country’s coal deposits have been reputed to be the largest the world over, therefore, Nigeria is extremely blessed in terms of mineral resources.

Mineral resources are so many, and these include several other resources, such as gold, and limestone, and salt, and glass sand among other mineral resources.

This article will be useful and helpful for persons, who may want to know those mineral resources found in their individual states and in Nigeria as well.

And more so, for persons who want to have an idea about the complete list of mineral resources in Nigeria, besides almost all the states in the country will find this article helpful and useful.
