Report summary

Sonshi Mareto Sodo is a complex comprised of two small surface mines, Sonshi and Mareto Sodo, and is approximately 1,400 kilometres south-east of New Delhi in the Indian state of Goa. The mine is operated by Vedanta Limited. Iron ore mining in the state of Goa recommenced in 2014 after a two year ban and Vedanta re-started its operations in late-2015. 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.
