DMPQ- Point out the major mineral belts of India.

. Most of the metallic minerals in India occur in the peninsular plateau region in the old  crystalline rocks. Over 97 per cent of coal reserves occur in the valleys of Damodar, Sone, Mahanadi and Godavari.  Areas of high rainfall lack in soluble minerals like Limestone, Gypsum and Salt.  Northern Plains are poor in minerals because thick layers of alluvium are deposited on the original surface. Minerals are generally concentrated in three broad belts in India.

The North-Eastern Plateau Region

This belt covers Chotanagpur (Jharkhand), Orissa Plateau, West Bengal and parts of Chhattisgarh. It has variety of minerals viz. iron ore coal, manganese, bauxite, mica.   Chota Nagpur Plateau is called ‘the Mineral heart’ of India.

 

The South-Western Plateau Region

This belt extends over Karnataka, Goa and  contiguous Tamil Nadu uplands and Kerala. This belt is rich in ferrous metals and bauxite. It also contains high grade iron ore, manganese and limestone. This belt  packs in coal deposits except Neyveli lignite. This belt does not have as  diversified mineral deposits as the north-eastern belt. Kerala has deposits of  monazite and thorium, bauxite clay. Goa has iron ore deposits.

The North-Western Region

This belt extends along Aravali in Rajasthan and  part of Gujarat and minerals are associated with Dharwar system of rocks. Copper, zinc have been major minerals. Rajasthan is rich in building stones i.e. sandstone, granite, marble. Gypsum and Fuller’s earth deposits are also extensive. Dolomite and limestone provide raw materials for cement industry.  Gujarat is known for its petroleum deposits.
