Heavy Mineral Mining Creating Alternate Employment For Locals Says VV Minerals

VV Mineral says fishing, which is a seasonal profession lasts for about five months from September to January, while for the remainder of the seven months of the year fishing can be a difficult task. The length of the coastline of Gulf of Mannar is 223.90 kms.

Some people believe that the livelihoods of fishermen are affected by the process of heavy mineral mining. Some also feel that the development of fisheries is being challenged by the mining process. Such distress and confusion can be seen in the state of Tamil Nadu.

However, this is not the case. The truth is that the heavy mineral mining along the coastline helps in generating employment, especially in the non-season months, thereby increasing the standard of living of the fishermen in the area.

This upgrade occurs owing to the additional income garnered in other activities. Garnet mineral is abundantly found on the Gulf of Mannar, hence, garnet mining and processing industries provide ample job opportunities for the fishermen and their family throughout the year. 

VV Minerals is the company that is taking the initiative in the generation of alternate employement in the district of Tuticorin.

The organization is one among the elite heavy mineral mining companies around the globe. It is a family grown business and the organization is owned by Mr. S. Vaikundarajan. They have been awarded as the ‘Number One Garnet Exporters’ of our country. They also undertake Zircon mining, Rutile mining and Ilmenite mining.
