Treasures of the Depths as Biblical Proof Indicating Israelite Origin.
Together with blessings of Agricultural Plenty a promise of mineral resources was also given to Israel.
"EVEN BY THE GOD OF THY FATHER, WHO SHALL HELP THEE; AND BY THE ALMIGHTY, WHO SHALL BLESS THEE WITH BLESSINGS OF HEAVEN ABOVE, BLESSINGS OF THE DEEP THAT LIETH UNDER, BLESSINGS OF THE BREASTS, AND OF THE WOMB:"
BLESSINGS OF THE DEEP: Water and mineral resources.
"AND OF JOSEPH HE SAID, BLESSED OF THE LORD BE HIS LAND, FOR THE PRECIOUS THINGS OF HEAVEN, FOR THE DEW, AND FOR THE DEEP THAT COUCHETH BENEATH,"
"AND FOR THE CHIEF THINGS OF THE ANCIENT MOUNTAINS AND FOR THE PRECIOUS THINGS OF THE LASTING HILLS."
Here are a few figures illustrating the fulfilment of this blessing. [This article will probably be added to later.]

In the past the British isles supplied coal, tin, copper, and gold.
Sweden was important for its iron ore reserves.
USA: Mining, Minerals and Fuel Resources
The United States of America is a land with vast natural resources including coal, copper, lead, uranium, molybdenum, nickel, phosphates, silver, rare earth elements, bauxite, gold, iron, mercury, zinc, potash, tungsten, petroleum and natural gas. It has the world's largest coal reserves with about 475 billion tons and accounts for about 27% of the total world reserves. The demand for minerals within the US itself is very high; for example, its construction industry consumes nearly 51% of copper mined in the country.
The mining industry in the U.S. is one of the most technologically advanced industries, as it incorporates some of the best technology available to provide safe and sustainable mining options. It not only strengthens the country�s economy, but also provides numerous well-paid job opportunities. As of 2017, over 621,000 people were employed by the U.S. mining industry.
Every state in United States of America is actively involved in the mining sector. The total direct and indirect value of U.S. mining is $1.9 trillion.
The U.S. mineral production statistics are as follows:
Fourth largest producer of gold in the world (after China, Australia and Russia)
Fourth largest producer of copper in the world (after Chile, China and Peru)
Leading producer of soda ash, beryllium, zinc, and sulfur in the world.
The United States of America is the largest producer and consumer of lead in the world.
America is a leading producer of beryllium, as it is home to more than 87% of the world�s beryllium output. The U.S. is also a major producer of phosphate rock and soda ash.
UK: Mining, Minerals and Fuel Resources
The United Kingdom, with a total population of 63,047,162 as of July 2010....
UK is the third largest economy in Europe and is a leading financial center and trading power.
In 2011, the country's GDP was $2.29 trillion, and it was the second largest in Europe.
The country has oil, coal and natural gas resources...
Overview of Resources
The key natural resources of the UK include limestone, petroleum, coal, iron ore, lead, natural gas, tin, gold, slate, silica land, potash, chalk, gypsum and clay. Natural gas, coal and petroleum are of immense importance in the country's mining industry.
Control of World Mineral Resources
In addition to possessing a more than reasonable proportion of the World Mineral Resources Israelite nations (especially the USA and UK) for many years effectually CONTROLLED those of many other countries.
This is still true to a degree through China is also becoming a serious competitor.
