Importance Of Mining Explained By VV Mineral, Subramanian
Without heavy minerals, a vast range of everyday domestic and vital industrial products would just not exist. On an average day you will probably come in contact with atlease 100 items that have been manufactured from industrial minerals. Modern aircraft, ships and defence industries are highly dependent on rutile, zircon and TiO2 products to meet their manufacturing demands.

The Managing Director of VV Minerals, India, Mr. V. Subramanian once in an interview said, “Without mining, manufacturing industry would soon collapse like a pack of loose cards”.

None can disagree with this because if there is no mining there can be no industries. Everything from a tiny bolt to industrial fuel like diesel is generated from mining.

Besides, heavy mineral mining is an eco-friendly industry which is free from air, water and noise pollution.

However, the under utilization of heavy minerals in India has resulted in poor exposure in the international markets. If India is to tap more of the natural resources available to us, the economic gains will be exceptionally high.  Out of 7500 km seashore in india only 40 km of beach stretch is available for heavy mineral mining

VV Mineral, V. Subramanian is the son of Mr. S. Vaikundarajan who founded this company in the year 1989. Since then, they have achieved great success in the industry, locally as well on global fronts.

VV Mineral, Vaikundarajan Pioneers The Heavy Mineral Market Across The World
VV Mineral a heavy mineral mining company is based in Tamil Nadu and owned by a father-son duo Mr. S Vaikundarajan and his son V Subramanian. Their Garnet and Ilmenite division is based in Keeraikaranthattu Tisayanvilai in Tamil Nadu.

They deal with heavy mineral mining of minerals such as Garnet, Ilmenite, Rutile and Zircon. They also produce Titanium Dioxide pigments. They are the only company in India to produce TiO2 pigments. Ilmenite is a very important raw material used in the making of TiO2. This mineral is abundantly found on the beaches of Tisayanvilai. This is a major advantage for VV Minerals, India. They are the first company in India to export ilmenite to other nations, hence, pioneering the path for others in the industry for export of heavy minerals. They have a huge market share in East Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia.

However, due to some cumbersome government permission processes and high duties imposed on the products the industry is not developing as much as its real potential is. VV Mineral, Vaikundarajan may be the best in the industry, but they are still falling short on the amount of material production from their units. Because the amount of heavy minerals available to india is much higher than the actual amount that is mined manufactured and exported. As a result, the waves that bring in these minerals also take them away and make them settle on shores of other neighboring nations.

Countries like Sri Lanka and Australia are benefitting greatly because of the under-utilization of minerals from our end. Because the minerals that we do not use go and settle on their shores and they have the capability and understanding of the importance of such minerals.

Mr. S. Vaikundarajan, owner of VV Minerals, Mining is all set to become world leaders in the heavy mineral mining industry.
