The mining industry in Goa may have had a bad patch in the past year with agitations by locals and transporters and a ban on transportation of ore by Karnataka, but iron ore exports from Goa were the highest ever at over 54 million tonnes.
"In the financial year 2010-11, Goa's export of iron ore has been the highest so far," Goa mineral ore exporters' association (GMOEA) executive director S Sridhar told TOI.
The final figures are still being tabulated but exports are to the tune of more than 54 million tonnes, he said. The figure has proved wrong analysts who had said the ban by Karnataka on transportation of iron ore to Goa, would affect exports.
