The ultimate objective of Darwin Platform Gold & Mine Ltd. is to advance the gold mining prospects into commercial gold production.Multi-parametric exploration techniques such as remote sensing studies, regional and detailed geological mapping, regional and detailed geochemical and geophysical exploration, topographic survey, various methods of drilling and multi-element chemical analysis were adopted in undertaking the exploration work, as per international standards.
India is a country rich in mineral resources. A major portion of the country is composed of Precambrian rocks which have hosted major gold discoveries worldwide. There were over a hundred gold mining centres in the early part of last century.
Despite having some of the best potential ground for gold mineralization, India’s annual primary gold mine output has reduced significantly to below 5 tonnes. The land of the world famous Kolar Gold Fields and the largest consumer of gold on earth, India has suffered in developing its gold mining potential due to lack of adequate exploration expenditure, the nationalistic policies of the previous governments and a non-investor friendly mineral policy.
The new India, with a strong economic growth outlook, is looking to revive the mineral exploration and mining sector through foreign and Indian private investment and the planned introduction of liberalised internationally compatible mining policies. Darwin Platform Gold & Mine Ltd. with some of the best gold prospects in the country, geologically similar to areas that have been home to major world gold discoveries, is going to play a leading role in this revival.
