Jianpeng Chu (School of Resources and Environmental Engineering, Shandong University of Technology)


 Based on the teaching practice of mineral resources economics, this article believes that a certain economic foundation is an indispensable condition for learning mineral resource economics well for the students of geology majors, and the teaching content of mineral resources economics must include the basic knowledge of economics; Mining resource management is an indispensable content for constructing a knowledge system of economic analysis and evaluation of mineral resources. The teaching content of mineral resource economics should include the sustainable use of mineral resources and the environmental protection.
