    Luckily NOT FOR Uranium mines !!!! ONly Uranium Corporation of India Ltd (UCIL) which operates under the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) does this.

    Stupid press, 5000 tonnes of ore is not a MAJOR find. Are you kidding me?

    Was this on some press website or is this a DAE press release?

    No matter if this is big find or small...I just feel that Govt should really look at the thorium stocks in the coastal land of rameshwaram....we are the thorium richest country in this world. Our nuclear energy and weapons programs should be based on home avail thorium. Instead of buying Uranium from western powers and Australia we should divert that money into our own thorium energy research. Once we are successful we can make money by supplying thorium to foreign countries who are looking to develop peaceful nuclear energy programs. Our corrupt leaders wont let this happen though.

    I am amazed. What does Chhota-Nagpur Plateau not have? It has every major mineral. Wow!

    Now, we need to get back Aksai Chin.

    Dream on! :lol: Aksai Chin is militarily indefensible! It's a low lying salt plain on the other side of the Himalayas!

    We don't need Uranium anyway, India's nuke program is plutonium based.

    According to the map or the image above, the more dense deposits are in AKSAI CHIN, which is under the control of the Chinese. Is ths the reason that the Chinese got hold of Aksai Chin during the 1962 war?

    Why din't INDIA try to know this?

    India has has more then half of world's thorium deposits. But India is pressurized not to build thorium reactors so that we can buy their uranium.
