Bicholim Surla iron ore mine

Report summary

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. Vedanta was allocated a 5.5 Mtpa production cap but produced more than this in 2016 and 2017. In February 2018, it was announced that the licences and permits awarded in 2015 were deemed invalid by the Supreme Court and that mining must cease by 16 March 2018. Given the mining ban, and the marginal nature of Vedanta's Goan mines, we have assumed that the mines will cease production, indefinitely, from this year.
