Investopedia, on October 16, 2018, identified the Top Ten Nations with the most natural resources. Venezuela ranked eighth; the United States ranked seventh. Not only are Venezuela’s oil reserves tremendous, it significantly ranks second in gold deposit reserves. Is it any wonder the US won’t let the Venezuelan democratic-socialist government and the democracy of its people Venezuela prevail? As a side note, after Libya’s government was overthrown its gold went missing and remains unaccounted.
This South American country has an estimated $14.3 trillion worth of natural resources. It is the leading exporter of bauxite, coal, gold, iron ore and oil. The country’s oil reserves are greater than those of the United States, Canada and Mexico combined. Venezuela is the third largest producer of coal after Brazil and Colombia. It also has the eighth largest reserves of natural gas accounting for 2.7% of the global supply. Venezuela also has the second-largest reserves of gold deposits.
