In this episode, I talk about the differences between a mineral occurrence, a mineral deposit, and an ore deposit.  And most of that is about the finances (profit and loss) of mining that resources than about the geology.

This is a great primer for teaching students about mineral resources or to understand what these terms mean if you see them on a map.
