Classification of Mineral Resources and Reserves Geology
The term itself does not have any real economic meaning, although the mineral occurrence is generally a mineral of economic interest. An occurrence is often mentioned in a report because of the prospect of finding a larger amount of the mineral in close proximity to the occurrence. It would suggest further exploration in the area.

Clay Minerals Properties, Occurrence and Uses Nova
To a geologist, clay minerals are fine particles (< 2 m in size) and are also major constituents of rocks, sediment and soils. To an engineer, ceramicist or mineralogist, clay minerals belong to the family of phyllosilicate (or sheet silicate) of minerals, which shows properties of plasticity, shrinkage, and hardening upon drying or firing.

Minerals Definition, Occurrence and Classification
Minerals are naturally occurring inorganic solid homogeneous substances composed of atoms having an orderly and regular arrangement with definite chemical composition and a characteristic geometric form, such as quartz (SiO 2), Orthoclase (KAlSi 3 O 8), Calcite (CaCO 3), Olivine [(Mg, Fe)2SiO 4 ] and gypsum (CaSO 4.2H 2 O).
Mineral resource classification
Mineral resource classification is the classification of mineral resources based on an increasing level of geological knowledge and confidence. Mineral deposits can be classified as Mineral resources that are potentially valuable, and for which reasonable prospects exist for eventual economic extraction.
Reserve vs occurrence Energy Education
Both the terms occurrence and reserve refer to some amount of a resource, however, the ideas are fundamentally different.Primary fuels such as coal, oil, natural gas, and uranium are materials that occur on the Earth, and have associated occurrences and reserves.However, flows in nature like wind, solar and hydro only have associated occurrences, and no reserves as there is no "stockpile" of them.
The Nova Scotia Mineral Occurrence Database (MODB

Occurrence, determination, and assessment of mineral oils
Mineral oil hydrocarbon contaminations can often be found in oilseeds, oils, and fats as these matrices are good keepers to accumulate them from all kind of sources along the production chain. In addition, seeds and vegetable oils contain naturally occurring hydrocarbons in various compositions.
Mode of Occurrence of Minerals Minerals and Energy
Minerals generally occur in the cracks, crevices, faults and joints of the igneous and metamorphic rocks. Smaller occurrence of such type is called a vein and a larger occurrence is called a lode. Gold being extracted from a vein Minerals like tin, copper, zinc, and lead etc. are found in veins and lodes
