The Indian Bureau of Mines provisionally place the total value of mineral production (excluding petroleum and minerals prescribed under the Atomic Energy Act, 1948) in 1958 at Rs. 131 crores compared with Rs. 127.3 crores in 1957. The increase of Rs. 3.7 crores, a Press release said, was mainly due to a higher production of coal, salt, iron ore, mica, limestone and ilmenite. Coal with an output of about 46.1 million metric tons was the leading commodity and was valued at Rs. 86.6 crores.The production of other minerals is : copper ore 411,000 metric tons ; gold 5,288 kilograms ; ilmenite 314,000 metric tons ; iron ore 6 million metric tons ; manganese ore 1.2 million metric tons ; mica (crude)31.802 million metric tons ; and salt 4.2 million metric tons.
