  □ Mineral resources

  Under the complex geological structure, there are 118 kinds of mineral resources of which the reserves have been proved, including 2 energy mineral resources (blind coal and terrestrial heat), 31 metallic minerals, 82 non-metallic minerals and 1 aqueous mineral resources. There are also extensive reserves of gold, silver, lead, zinc, manganese, kaolin, cement rock, granite, alunite, pyrophyllite and sulfur etc. The reserve volume of limestone hits 700 million tons, which can be used for manufacturing cement for 200 years. The reserve volume of Shoushan Stone ranks top in China, while that of kaolin ranks third. Both the reserve volume and the quality of quartz sand rank top in the country.

  □ Maritime resources

  Boasting a large sea area, Fujian has a coastline extending more than 3,300 kilometers, 1400 large and small islands and 22 large harbors capable of building 10,000-ton deepwater berths. The maritime domain of Fujian is a transitional sea area between East China Sea and South China Sea, and is the shallow sea of subtropical continental shelf with the convergence of cold and warm currents and injection of extensive fresh water. The fertile water quality brings about extensive floating organism and abundant aquatic resources. The total area of available offshore fishing grounds reaches 125,000 square kilometers, in which the total area for breeding of seashell, alga and marine products hits 2,700 square kilometers. With more than 500 fish stocks, Fujian is one of China's major fishery regions.

  □ Water resources

  Rich in water resources, Fujian boasts its densely covered streams. There are 29 water systems and 663 rivers, while the total length of inland rivers hits 13,569 kilometers. Its river density ranks top in China. The theoretic waterpower reserve amounts to 10,460,000 KW, with a possible installed capacity of 7,050,000 KW, ranking top in East China.

  □ Forest resources

  Fujian is one of four major forest regions of China. With abundant forest resources, its forest coverage reaches 6,667,000 hectares, and the total wooded area hits 6,000,000 hectares. The timber reserve amounts to 0.4 billion cubic meters, with timber output ranking top 3 in China. The forest cover rate of 62.9% also ranks first in China. Abounding with tree resources, there are 1,943 species of wood plants, 400 species of timber trees and 140 species of bamboos. Besides providing extensive logs, they are also widely applied in the industry.
