The Kingdom of the Netherlands consists of:
- the "European" Netherlands, this page.
- the Caribbean Netherlands (Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius), which have municipality status,
- and Aruba, Curaçao and the Dutch part of the island of Saint Martin.

So, yes, the Dutch have minerals, mines and volcanoes (on Saba, Sint Eustatius and one 2 km below ground under the Wadden Sea ;)
