Rare Earth

Did you know, India accounts for 11% of glob­al beach sand min­er­al deposits? The­se min­er­als are sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly cat­e­go­rized as Rare Earth.

Cur­rent­ly India has a coast­line of 7,500 kms. Our deposits con­tain heavy min­er­als like ilmenite, rutile, gar­net, mon­azite, zir­con, and sil­li­man­ite. One such pri­vate play­er which man­u­fac­tures and exports such heavy rare earths is VV Min­er­al.

The com­pa­ny is India’s largest man­u­fac­tur­er and exporter of min­er­als like gar­net, ilmenite and sil­li­man­ite. They’re the first pri­vate com­pa­ny in India hold­ing grant­ed license for Min­ing and Export­ing of Ilmenite from the Gov­ern­ment of India.
