The Minister’s claim that there is gold in the three districts has given the people of Odisha new cause for optimism. 

In actuality, the 1980s saw the first survey for the gold resource in the Keonjhar district. The Geological Survey of India (GSI) had carried out the survey in places like Kushakala, Goppur, and Jaladiha villages under Taramakant and Nayakote Panchayats in Keonjhar district’s Banasapal block using the technologies available at the time. The survey’s results, nevertheless, remained a secret.

Then, in 2021–2022, the GSI conducted another study in those areas in the Keonjhar district using the most up-to-date technologies. The GSI authorities remained mum about the survey’s findings at that time as well.

But, in light of the Steel and Mines Minister’s remarks in the House, the residents of Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, and Deogarh are in a pickle.
