love dale belagavi

People in Deshnur (Bailhongal Taluk) village were stunned to see a low flying helicopter at about 75 meters with something hanging down moving around their village for many hours. It is nothing but the areal survey of Belgaum, Bagalkot and Bijapur districts for uranium deposits.

In addition to the field survey that has been going on in Deshanur village, Bailhongal taluk, Belgaum district and the ongoing process to acquire land for uranium extraction in Gogi village, Shahapur taluk, Yadgir district.

In fact, the helicopter, which has been flying low over the city, had caused panic among the people as it is fitted with electromagnetic equipment and has a loop of 15 – metre radius dropped down by a 45-metre long cable.

Atomic Minerals Directorate for Exploration and Research of the Department of Atomic Energy (AMDER) has been surveying the area with prior permission from the district authorities for a possible availability of uranium in this region.

Office of Department of Atomic Energy, Hyderabad, confirmed to the Belgaum district administration that the helicopter was engaged in geophysical surveys in parts of Belgaum, Bagalkot and Bijapur districts of Karnataka and parts of Kolhapur district of Maharashtra.

The chopper contains equipment like the Time Domain Electro- Magnetic sensor, Magnetometer and Gamma Ray spectrometer.

Other instruments housed inside the helicopter are computer-based data acquisition system and DGPS Navigation system.

The survey covers a large an area of 12,000 sq.km covering four districts.

  3. Please give me the complite information About Deshanur Villege Urenium project,, If you Haved eshanur place videos Please Inform Me……

  4. Way back in 2006, uranium deposits were discovered in and around Deshnur. However, the Atomic Minerals Division prioritized Cuddaph in AP and Deshnur was put on the back-burner. the energy needs of the country will lead to look at all the available resources and therefore this renewed interest. The deposits are crude ore, they need to be refined, so I presume the authorities will ensure the necessary safety.
    Here is a presentation by the Director of AMD about the exploration and status in the country
