“Minerals are very unevenly distributed in India”. Support the statement with examples.
India is fortunate to have fairly rich and varied mineral resources.
- Peninsular rocks contain most of the reserves of coal, metallic minerals, mica and many other non-metallic minerals.
- Sedimentary rocks on the western and eastern flanks of the peninsular, in Gujarat and in Assam have most of the petroleum deposits.
- Rajasthan has reserves of many non-ferrous minerals.
- The vast alluvial plains, of India are almost devoid of economic minerals.
