Mineral Resources in Goa

The State of Goa is a tiny emerald land on the west coast of the Indian Peninsula . The rich and varied mineral resources of the State have contributed handsomely towards the development and industrialization of the State. The landscape is mostly hilly forming part of the western ghats. The altitude varies from sea level to a maximum of 1700 metres above mean sea level. The territory is gifted with warm tropical climate and annual rainfall of 350 to 450 cms. during the monsoon seasons -June to October. The main rivers Mandovi and Zuari both flowing into the Arabian sea are navigable by barges used for transporting the ore.
The State of Goa is endowed with Mineral Resources. Iron ore, Manganese ore, Bauxite are minerals of economic importance. Besides there are minor minerals like Basalt, Laterite stones and rubbles, River sand, Murrum etc., which are in great demand as construction material. This industry is labour intensive and provides work to large number of people.
Mining in Goa today is synonymous with iron ore mining. Exploration for Iron ore started at the beginning of the 20th Centaury. Present day mining resumed in 1947 which marks the beginning of modern day mining and export of iron ore. The exports have steadily increased from 4,36,400 tonnes of iron ore in 1951 to 35 million tones in 2008-09. The Goan iron ore is exported to China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Eastern European Countries.
Iron ore mining in Goa is completely in the private sector. The Iron ore deposits are distributed over the Northern, Southern and Central Blocks of Goa. The Northern Block deposits are richer both in terms of quality and quantity of the ore, as compared to the Southern and Central Blocks.
Infrastructure wise Goa has an advantage over other exporting regions in the countries in view of its being endowed with a deep sea port and waterways that crisscross the territory facilitating barge transport. The two rivers Mandovi and Zuari have proved to be a boon to the working industry as they provide cheap river transport. These two rivers and the Mormugao Harbour are nature’s gift and are natural resources of Goa.
The Bauxite Mines are situated in South Goa over an area of 1263.678 HA. with estimated reserves of 70 million tons. These are metallurgical grade bauxite which can also be used for various applications such as cement, alumina chemicals, etc. The mines are situated also in the close proximity of two major ports, viz. Marmugoa Port and Betul Port.
It has the following Minor Minerals reserves Basalt,Laterite, River sand, Laterite-Rubble, Laterite-boulders, Pebble, Murrum and Lime Shell. The Major Minerals reserves are Bauxite, Iron ore, Manganese ore etc.

Citizen Charter

The Directorate of Mines & Geology looks after the work of mineral administration. It regulates the grant of mineral concessions through the enforcement of the following legislation:

  • The Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act 1957
  • The Mineral Concession Rules 1960
  • The Goa Minor Mineral Concession Rules 1985
  • The Goa Daman and Diu Mining Concessions (Abolition and Declaration as Mining Leases) Act 1987
  • The Goa (Prevention of Illegal Mining, Transportation and Storage) Rules 2004.

Besides it is also responsible for implementation of the following legislations even though these legislations are enforced by other agencies:

  • The Mineral Conservation and Development Rules 1988
  • The Mines Act 1952 and the rules made there under.

The Act 57 and MCR 60 regulate the grant/renewal of reconnaissance permits, prospecting licences and mining leases.
The procedure for grant of mineral concessions is that all such applications are received and processed in the Directorate. The application which is received is required to be acknowledged in the prescribed form. The application is thereafter sent to the draughtsman and surveying section to ascertain the availability of the area. After doing the needful, the case is further processed by the dealing hand. If any deficiencies are noticed in the matter of submission of documents as required under the law or as decided by the competent authority, the same are brought to the notice of the applicant for rectification. References are also made to Revenue and Forest Department to ascertain their views on the suitability of the site from the point of public nuisance or forestry angle. The area is also inspected by a geologist of this Directorate to ascertain the suitability of the area from mineral potential point of view including the possible adverse effects arising from prospecting or mining activity. If the area involved is a forest land the case is processed for clearance under section 2 of FCA 1980 after obtaining approval in principle from the State Government. Clearance under section 2 of FCA 1980 involves a detailed proposal from the applicant in terms of Forest Conservation Rules and the guidelines prescribed by MOEF.
All mineral concessions (PLS and MLS) which have been granted require to be inspected for ascertaining the compliance to the conditions of licence or lease as the case may be. Prospecting operations are required to be conducted in accordance with the scheme of prospecting duly approved by the Indian Bureau of Mines (IBM) while mining operations are to be conducted in accordance with the approved mining plan.
With the issue of notification dated 14/09/2006, all mining leases having an area of more than 5 Ha require to obtain environmental clearance from the MOEF. State Pollution control board is the nodal agency for conducting public hearings and submitting the proposals to MOEF for consideration.
The mining lease holders are required to pay royalty, dead rent and surface rent to the Govt. Royalty is payable in terms of Schedule II of the Act 57. Royalty is payable on ad valorem basis on iron and manganese ore. In respect of bauxite and aluminous laterite, it is payable on LME rates or advalorem basis depending upon the use of mineral. In terms of decision of the Govt. royalty is payable on first of every month and any delay for payment beyond a period of 60 days entails a simple interest on the lease holders 24%p.a. In order to assess the dues, the lease holders are required to submit the self assessment returns which in turn needs scrutiny of the Department. After assessment, demands are raised on the defaulters and if the amount is not paid, steps are taken by the Department to recover the same as arrears of land revenue.
The Directorate is saddled with various problems relating to the damage to agricultural lands due to flow of mining waste, pumping of turbid water from mining pits, air/dust pollution, deforestation and land degradation. The scale of iron ore mining operations have reached such an intensity that environmental problems loom large and therefore require constant attention of the Directorate being the nodal agency. Effective action to address these problems involves site inspections, liason with State Pollution Control Board, Revenue, Water Resources Dept and Forest Department.
  • A monitoring committee under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Mines) has been set up to discuss the recommendations made by TERI in their report submitted to the Govt
The following plan schemes are being implemented”
  • Strengthening of Mines Dept
  • Modernisation of Mines Dept
The Directorate also handles the following matters connected with mineral administration and development:
  • State Geological Programming Board under Chairmanship of Hon. Minister for Mines (geological program in the state)
  • Mineral Foundation of Goa (forum for coordinating the work of mining companies in the matter of improvement of environment and welfare measures).
The Directorate maintains monthly data on production of minerals which is a requirement under MCDR 88. These monthly returns are submitted by the lease holders. Such data not only helps in maintenance of statistics but also helps the Directorate in the matter of assessment of Govt. dues towards royalty/dead rent.
The Minor Minerals Section of the Directorate of Mines deals with grant of quarrying licence and quarrying permit for different minor minerals available in Goa and enforcement of the Goa Daman and Diu Minor Mineral Concession Rules 1985. It also regulates transportation of minor minerals by road within Goa by issuing transit passes.
Application for quarrying lease received from any person is first registered in the Register of applications by the dealing hand in accordance with the provisions of Minor Mineral Rules and a file is opened. The application is then scrutinised to ensure that all the necessary documents are attached along with FORM A and the concerned fee is paid. Thereafter the relevant file is sent to the Draughtsman I to verify as to whether the area applied for quarrying lease is free for grant or not. On receipt of the file from the Draughtsman Section if the area is free for grant, the case is forwarded to the Inspecting Officer for inspection and report. On receipt of the inspection report from the respective Inspecting Officer, the case is processed further and put up to Director of Mines who is the Competent Officer; the case is processed further and put up to Director of Mines who is the Competent Officer under the rules. If deemed fit, an order of grant is issued by the Director of Mines and the party has to deposit the required amount in the Govt. treasury. On payment of this amount, the area is demarcated by our Surveyor and a copy of the plan is prepared which is required to be signed by the Surveyor, the concerned Sr. Technical Assistant and the Director. After the plan is prepared, a certified copy of the plan is also prepared for being annexed to the lease deed. Thereafter, the dealing hand prepares the lease deed papers and a date is fixed for the applicant to execute the agreement with the Director of Mines. Once the lease deed is complete in all respects the lessee is issued transit passes for transportation of minerals. The lessees who are interested in obtaining the transit passes pay the royalty in advance on the minor minerals which he desires to extract and an application is made to the Department. The challan is thereafter entered in the Computer and the dealing hand puts the transit pass in the respective file for signature of the concerned officer. For all minor minerals except basalt, Schedule III and Schedule IV. The booklet in Schedule III is issued for transportation of basalt boulders from the quarry to the crusher whereas Schedule IV is used for transporting the crushed material to the consumption site.

In case of murrum where usually extraction is very fast by deploying machinery an Environment Management Plan is insisted showing the following details:
  • Location and accessibility
  • Geomorphology
  • Local Geology
  • Drainage pattern.
  • Flora and Fauna
  • Year wise development plan
  • Extent of mechanization and blasting
  • Base line information
  • Environmental impact assessment including impact on air, water, settlement etc.
  • Conceptual plan showing how the area will look at the end of one year.

Quarrying permits are issued for limited extraction of minor minerals with maximum quantity of 1000 c.mts and maximum area of extraction is 1000 sq. mts

Any person desirous to obtain a quarrying lease, quarrying permit and transit pass should contact the Sr. Geologist or STA II, of Directorate of Mines, Udyog Bhavan, Panaji-Goa.

Expectations from the Citizen/Clients
  • Extraction of minor minerals without a valid lease is an offence punishable under Rule 62 (1) (2) of the Goa Daman and Diu Minor Mineral Concession Rules 1985. Hence it is obligatory on the part of extractors to obtain a valid quarrying lease before indulging in extraction of any minor minerals.
  • Before submitting the applications for grant of quarrying lease all the required documents are to be shown to the concerned officer for scrutiny.
  • Local Geology
  • The owner of the trucks/quarrying lease holder transporting any kind of minor minerals should insist that the driver of the truck carries duly filled in valid pass in order to avoid penal action.

Mining Areas

  • The mining belt of Goa covers an area of approximately 700 sq. kms. And is mostly concentrated in 4 talukas namely Bicholim, Sattari, Sanguem and Quepem. Mining industry has been very important element in the economic history of Goa. It has provided a trigger to boost the economic growth in these talukas.
  • Mining in Goa is done by open cast method which necessitated the removal of overburden overlying the iron ore formations. On an average 2.3 tons of mining waste has to be removed in order to produce a ton of iron ore. The average annual production of iron ore is of the order of 15-16 million tons and in this process about 40 - 50 million tons of mining waste is generated. Such a huge quality of mining waste not only created a problem for its storage but is also source of environmental pollution. The total annual royalty collection on major minerals is to the tune of around ₹ 250.00 crores
  • In all there are 334 mining leases in existence out of which 82 mining leases were in operation during the period 2009-10.
  • The iron ore deposits in Goa are mainly haematite and extend in North-North West, South-South East directions from North to the South occupying nearly 1/5th area of the total territory.
  • The main iron ore bearing zone is divided into four separate areas by major faults. These areas are :
    • Bicholim - Pale area
    • Sancordem area
    • Shigao - Kalay area
    • Sanguem - Quepem area.
  • The iron ore bearing areas is continuous with little local variation in thickness and quality of the ore.
