I am doing a research on diamonds and need help. I am having trouble finding a source that answers my questions besides Wikipedia. My teachers will not let us use Wikipedia. Can you please provide links to these questions?
Where is the natural resource (diamonds) located? Is it found in Canada and/or the United States?
**I have already found where diamonds are found in the U.S., I need help with Canada on this one.
Does the natural resource have to be changed or processed before it can be used by people or machines?
**Both US and Canada.
How does the country regulate the gathering or use of the natural resource?
**Both US and Canada
Thanks so much!
Okay thanks! So
Jericho, Ekati, Diavik, Snap Lake, and Victor
Yes it has to be processed (I will explain why)
Diamonds are imported; the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme is also used.
**I will write everything in greater detail, but those are my basic ideas.
The first two look good.
For 3, you need to look at the laws in each country about mining, processing and using diamonds.
Okay will do! Is it okay if you help me on a few others? Please!
Which consumers use this natural resource?
Which products are made using this natural resource?
How is the environment impacted by the use of the natural resource?
How important is the natural resource to the country?
**I really have researched, I have spent 2 hours already! Its just.....I am never able to find anything that answers my questions!
Think, Delilah! You know how diamonds are used and who uses them. You may not know about some of these uses, though.
Okay thank you!
