Mines And Geology Department

The State Department of Mines, Minerals and Geology, Government of Sikkim, has been carrying out geological & geo - technical studies to establish exploitable resources of minerals of the State and identify areas vulnerable to to instability. Since Geological Survey of India is also carrying out geological studies of the State, the State Department shifted its focus from geological studies to geo-technical investigations. A number of hazard and risk assessment studies and geo-engineering remedial measure have been successfully completed by the State Department. Having seen the quality of work and success of some activities. The Government has decided to entrust the job of geo-technical investigation of towns, villages & geological consultancy to the Department of Mines, Minerals & Geology, Government of Sikkim. Save geo-technical and geo-engineering works, a boom in mineral exploration and / or exploitation in the State is unlikely until both environmental issues & native issues are better defined. The decision taken by the Government recently is, therefore considered as appropriate and timely.
