excellent soil, canal route, geothermal energy, volcanoes, lumber

Nicaragua’s major resources are its excellent soil and its potential as a canal route. In addition to gold and silver, it has unexploited mineral resources, including copper. Hydroelectric potential is limited, but volcanoes provide a potential source for generating more geothermal energy. Timber reserves are extensive but are being depleted rapidly to provide lumber and more land for agriculture. Some 20.2 percent of the land is farmed, and 27 percent is forested.
