I need help on this. Post a response to the following: Geologic events, such as volcanic activity, play an important role in forming many of our valuable resources, such as fossil fuel,lead, copper, and gold. For example 15.21 on p. 476 of the text shows the role of basaltic magma in forming one of the most valuable ores to our civilization, chromium. Select an important ore mined in your state or region, and discuss how geologic events played a role in forming this ore. Discuss the importance of this ore in the economy of your selected area and the U.S. as a whole. I live in Washington. I don't know how to look of things for this. Please help.
