Mining is an important profession, because almost all products used in modern homes require heavy minerals in some form or the other. Use of Minerals in our daily lives can even be in everyday products such as ceramic tiles, cosmetics, medicines, stationery, or even toothpaste. However we do not realize this fact because nobody buys minerals in the raw state, rather we use them as finished products such as TV or computer monitors, pens, houses, roads etc.
India’s GDP has grown steadily since Independence because it is backed by robust growth in the production of minerals such as iron ore, coal, copper, zinc, aluminium, magnesium, limestone, etc.
Without mining, manufacturing would not exist. Even agriculture is heavily dependent on minerals in the form of fertilizers that are needed for mass cultivation of food crops.
Only through mining, these minerals can be attained and used for economic growth.
One of the premier companies that indulge in heavy mineral mining of Garnet is V.V. Mineral. They are India’s biggest mining, manufacturers and exporters of Garnet. They have been awarded as the ‘Number One Garnet Exporters’ of our country. They also undertake Zircon mining, Rutile mining and Ilmenite mining.
To boost India’s GDP and make inclusive growth a reality, mining needs to grow in a big way and hurdles cleared in the mineral supply of industry. Economic growth, poverty alleviation and employment generation cannot become a ground reality unless supported simultaneously by mining. Indeed, mining and its downstream activities together possess the potential to employ millions of people.
