Natural resources are basically those resources that can never be disturbed by humanity and are naturally present in any environment. This article is an attempt to let you know about top ten countries which are blessed with these natural resources. Total resources value and other necessary information about them are given and all these top ten countries are enlisted according to their ranking in a chart form. Have a look…
List of Top 10 Countries having Most Natural Resources:
|Sr. No.||Country Name||Main Natural Resources|
|1||Russia||Coal, oil, gold, gas and timber|
|2||United States||Natural gas, gold, copper and oil|
|3||Saudi Arabia||Gas, timber and oil|
|4||Canada||Uranium, timber, oil, phosphate and gas|
|5||Iran||Natural gas and oil|
|6||China||Coal & timber|
|7||Brazil||Gold and uranium|
|8||Australia||Coal, iron ore, timber and copper|
|9||Iraq||Oil & natural gas|
|10||Venezuela||Iron, oil and natural gas|
First country which is among top ten countries with abundant natural resources is Venezuela and it is ranked as tenth largest country in this case. Venezuela is one of those countries which are blessed with large amount of iron, oil and natural gas. Total resource value of this particular country is about $14.3 trillion which includes oil and natural gas etc’s reserves. Among all these natural resources oil reserves value are $11.7 trillion and value of natural gas reserves are $1.9 trillion. But when we consider value of timber coffers here in Venezuela it does not come in list of top ten. Presence of oil assets in Venezuela serves as 7.4% of total supply of oil all over the world and is considered as sixth largest in this case.
Next country that is enriched with natural resources is Iraq and it is enlisted as ninth largest in the list of top ten countries with most naturally occurring exploitable material. A far as Iraq’s value of total resources is concerned it is not less than $15.9 trillion. Iraq is among those countries that are much known and enriched with oil resource and oil resource value of Iraq is $13.6 trillion and this is almost 9 % of the total globally. Apart from the fact that extraction is quite easy in this area, much of these reserves linger untouched and reason of this is biased differences between central government & Kurdistan relating to possession of oil. Along with oil reserves Iraq also has natural gas reserves and value of them is $1.3 trillion. Though it has timber reserves and phosphate rock but these are entirely underdeveloped.
Next comes Australia in this list on the basis of natural resources and it is ranked as eighth largest country among highest ranked countries on the basis of naturally occurring exploitable materials. So when we consider value of total reserves of natural resources with which Australia is enriched then it comes $19.9 trillion. Natural affluence of Australia comes from coal, iron ore, timber and copper. Now comes to value of individual resources, value of oil reserves as well as natural gas reserves is not as much in Australia to be in list of top ten. Whereas Timber reserves value of this particular country is $5.3 trillion. What Australia has much in it this is the question? Of course Australia is highly enriched with gold reserves as it is said it has by far a large amount of gold in the entire world at 14.3% of worldwide delivery.
Brazil is next country which I would like to discuss now and it is enlisted as seventh largest country among top ten countries with most natural resources. Brazil total estimated value of all natural resources is $21.8 trillion. What makes Brazil to be enlisted as seventh largest country with natural resources? It is definitely because of gold and uranium reserves that contributes a lot worldwide. Oil & Natural gas reserves are not as much that we can enlist it in top ten. Apart from gold and uranium reserves it has iron ore and it supplies 17% of total iron ore supply worldwide. Along with all these resources most influential natural resource of this particular country is Timber reserves and value of Timber reserves in Brazil is $17.5 trillion. 12.3% of total timber supply worldwide is done by Brazil.
Next enlisted country which I am going to discuss is China and it is ranked as sixth largest country among top ten countries with most natural resources. Value of total resources that are present in China is $23 trillion. China just like so many other top ranked countries has not as much reserves of oil and natural gas reserves that we can enlist it as one of the top ranked country but what makes China sixth largest country with abundance of natural things; of course so much reserves of coal and along with it presence of rare earth minerals make it sixth largest country that is blessed with natural things. And these two natural resources when combined provide almost 90% of country’s total resource value. Value of Timber reserves which are present in China is $6.5 trillion.
Next country which I would like to talk about is none other than Iran and it is fifth largest country with most natural resources among all high ranked countries on basis of these blessings. In Iran value of total resources is $27.3 trillion. When question of individual value of all resources that are present in Iran comes then it is following; value of oil reserves is $16.1 trillion and value of natural gas reserves is $11.2 trillion. Iran is that country which is considered as home to about 16% of total natural gas reserves present in world. Besides this fact that it is a biggest source of natural oil, country is facing trouble in realizing its resources economic worth because of its segregation from global markets.
Canada is next country that comes in this list of top ten countries with most natural things’ deposits and is considered as fourth largest in this list. Value of total resources that are present in Canada is about $33.2 trillion. Canada has reserves of oil and natural gas and value of oil reserves is $21 trillion and as far as natural gas reserves are concerned Canada is not in list of top ten. Along with all this value of timber reserves in Canada is $11.3 trillion. Canada is that country which is known for mining a good deal of phosphate worldwide apart from the fact that phosphate rocks present is Canada is not as much to be enlisted in top rank. Timber reserves present in it are proved third largest and this country is also provider of uranium and is second largest in this case.
3. Saudi Arabia:
Saudi Arabia comes next that is capable of being enlisted in top ten countries with most natural resources and it is ranked as fourth largest country in this case. As far as value of total resources present in Saudi Arabia is concerned it is $34.4 trillion. Saudi Arabia has oil, natural gas and timber reserves in it value of oil reserves is $31.5 trillion and value of natural gas reserves that are in this country is $2.9 trillion whereas timber reserves value of this is not as much as of top ten countries is. It is not wrong to say that Saudi is that country which provides world’s largest share of oil because it has approximately 20% of oil worldwide. The empire has no doubt fifth largest amount of natural gas reserves.
2. United States:
So, here we reach to second largest country with most natural resources among top ten countries with naturally occurring exploitable supplies. Value of total resources with which United States is blessed is $45 trillion. When we talk about value of all these resources individually then it is; natural gas reserves value in this country is $3.1 trillion and value of timber reserves is $10.9 trillion whereas oil reserves value is not as much to be ranked in top ten. Almost 31.2 proved coal reserves worldwide are present in United States. United States is one of those realms that are known internationally for gold, copper and natural gas as well.
Which country has most natural resources or what is name of that country which is top one in list of top ten countries with most natural resources?
Russia is known to be the top ranked country with most naturally occurring exploitable things. Total resource value of Russia is $75.7 trillion, value of oil reserves in this country is $7.08 trillion, when comes natural gas reserves value it is not less than $19 trillion whereas value of Timber reserves of this particular country is $28.4 trillion. So all this shows that world’s richest state according to natural resources is none other than Russia. Along with all these above mentioned natural things with which Russia is blessed, it is known as second largest country in the entire world on the basis of coal deposits and is third largest as far as gold deposits are concerned.
So, here comes an end of this article (top ten countries with most natural resources) ad all the necessary information relevant to this topic is given in a brief and concise manner. Total resource value, value of other natural reserves that are present in all these top ten countries is given. I am sure this is highly influential piece of writing and it will definitely be able to add something in your previous knowledge because it is worth knowledgeable.
