WHAT HAPPENS IF EARTH'S MINERALS ARE USED UP?

Will more grow or will there be no more

Some minerals are being formed all the tme; others are not and will die out, so to speak, or be redustributed and any one site will be too small to pay to mine. Personally, I doubt that any mineral will disappear completely.

Depending on what the minerals are, the manufactured objects composed of these minerals can be recycled. Do you have any specific minerals in mind?

I hope this helps a little. Thanks for asking.
