  1. Thank you for sharing. I learned so much from this project! Your conclusion is extremely important! Keep up the great work!

  2. Great job! You did your research and included something we’re all familiar with – the Statue of Liberty. You noted in your conclusion what happens to copper when it’s exposed to air/oxygen. This oxidation process is what results in the presence of malachite – a copper-bearing carbonate mineral, which is what we see today with the Statue of Liberty. This is one technique geologists use to locate copper deposits for possible mining operations. If the rocks show the green oxidation at the surface, it’s an indication that there may be copper present. Again, good job!.

  3. This is very imressive. I am so proud of you and look forward to talking with you about it.
