After deadly clashes in Tuticorin forced Tamil Nadu to shut a copper smelter run by Vedanta Resources, the company faces another challenge 1,000 miles away, where axe-toting tribesmen and environmentalists have joined forces to demand the closure of an alumina refinery. An alliance of activists and local people have for years blocked London-listed Vedanta's plans to mine bauxite in the green, jungle-clad Niyamgiri hills of eastern Odisha state, which the tribespeople consider sacred.

India's economic expansion to boost mining: President 16.5.2018 General News
India's GDP and larger developmental process will gain momentum over the coming decades and in turn bolster the mining and minerals sector, President Ram Nath Kovind said today. He also asserted that eventually the local communities must benefit from the discovery, extraction and development of mineral resources. The reform process set in motion in the mining sector four years ago is bearing rich dividends and will enhance the fiscal health of states, Kovind said at the National Geoscience awards event here.
