Bicholim Surla is a complex comprising of two small surface mines Bicholim and Surla and is approximately 1 600 kilometres south of New Delhi in the Indian state of Goa. The mine is owned and operated by Vedanta Limited. The mine re commenced operations in late 2015 following a 2 year ban on mining in the state of Goa. Although Vedanta's production is limited to 5.5Mtpa (dry) because of annual production quotas that have been imposed in the state it produced 7.1 Mt (dry) in 2016. Of this we estimate Bicholim Surla produced 2.1 Mt 0.6 Mt above it's quota and that this rate will be maintained in 2017.
