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. Vedanta produced above their quota until March 2018 when the Supreme Court cancelled all mining licences in Goa. While 2022 saw auction of 4 iron ore mining blocks in Goa, it is uncertain when production can begin at these newly auctioned mines. It is also very likely that the old mines will not be restarted/re-auctioned. It is unclear whether this mine will go up for auction. New environmental clearances will also be required and this has the potential to be a lengthy process. This report will not be updated unless mining recommences at this asset in Goa.
