Mines and Geology

The Directorate of Mines and Geology looks after the work of mineral administration. It regulates the grant of mineral concessions through the enforcement of the following legislation:

  • The Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act 1957
  • The Mineral Concession Rules 1960
  • The Goa Minor Mineral Concession Rules 1985
  • The Goa Daman and Diu Mining Concessions (Abolition and Declaration as Mining Leases) Act 1987
  • The Goa (Prevention of Illegal Mining, Transportation and Storage) Rules 2004.

 

Besides it is also responsible for implementation of the following legislations even though these legislations are enforced by other agencies:

  • The Mineral Conservation and Development Rules 1988
  • The Mines Act 1952 and the rules made there under.

 

The Act 57 and MCR 60 regulate the grant/renewal of reconnaissance permits, prospecting licences and mining leases.

 

Directorate of Mines and Geology was a part of Composite Directorate of Industries and Mines. Prior to Goa’s liberation, it was a part of Directorate of Economic Services. However, after Goa Liberation, it formed a part of the Directorate of Industries and Mines for quite some time. It was only with effect from 19th Feb 2004; the Directorate of Mines was separated from Directorate of Industries and Mines and became full fledged Directorate of Mines and Geology.
