Honduras has a variety of metallic resources which include antimony, copper, iron ore, lead, gold, silver and zinc. Fuel resources for the country are coal and hydropower. Other resources include timber and fish.
Honduras is subject to frequent, but generally mild, earthquakes. The country is extremely susceptible to damaging hurricanes and floods along the Caribbean coast.
Honduras has numerous environmental issues. One issue is an expanding urban population. Deforestation is another issue, which results from logging and the clearing of land for agricultural purposes. There is an increased rate of land degradation and soil erosion due to uncontrolled development and the improper land use practices (for example, farming of marginal lands). In addition, the country’s mining activities are polluting Lago de Yojoa (the country’s largest source of fresh water), as well as several rivers and streams, with heavy metals.
