Mining sector in India contributed about 3.5 % of GDP till 1998 which dropped to 1.2% in 2000 and remains constant thereafter. Keeping the growing global demand of mineral resources in focus, junior countries i.e. the countries that are into mining recently are moving forward with their attractive policies and effective exploration. To take a lead in mining sector India should promote effective exploration and production activity. Geospatial technology can facilitate better decision making in various processes of mining and thereby reducing its complexity.

Focus Areas:
  • Geospatial for exploration and production
  • Towards Sustainable and zero waste mining
  • G' reclamation and eco-friendly mining
