I don’t usually post these kinds of niche infographics, but the ones by Visual Capitalist are are pretty well done – both in terms of content and design. If you want a backgrounder on anything that comes out of the ground (copper, gold, lithium, gas, oil, diamonds, etc), check them out.

I love these kinds of visual educational infographics. I think it stems from early childhood and prolonged exposure to National Geographic. Good stuff.
