Riches of the Earth

Top of page

Colourful animation illustrates how Canada's underground resources took shape through geological ages, and how these riches of the earth have become our raw materials. We see the formation, by fire, water, wind and ice, of the Earth's crust, with its wealth of minerals, oil, coal, arable land and water.

1954, 16 min 15 s
