The presented contribution deals with a physico-geographical approach in the evaluation of natural resources and their rational utilization. It pays attention to the problems of regeneration and non-regeneration of natural resources, mostly minerals and other physico-geographical elements as soil, atmosphere (air), water. The natural resources are considered a basic possibility in the development of society, which is conditioned by their effective and rational utilization.
