Geological Survey of India finds coal reserves in Tripura

Nov 29, 2010 12:00 AM

The Geological Survey of India has struck reserves of quality coal in at West Tripura and Dhalai districts, official sources said. The sources said that a team of GSI scientists, headed by Director (Tripura Centre), T Rajkumar, conducted surveys in the two districts and found reserves of anthracite coal, considered as black gold.

Places where coals were found are Tulashikhar revenue block in West Tripura district, bordering Bangladesh and Dalucherra in Dhalai district. The samples have been sent to Delhi for further ''intensity'' test and the formal announcement would be made there, the sources said.

Since the tribes in the areas had been extracting coal and bitumen, a common binder in road construction, for a long time and selling them to local brick kilns, the sources said, there was a possibility of finding more coal reserves in the two districts.
