17 Inspection Officer’s Remarks:

M/s South West Mining Ltd. Dhone, Posses a mining lease for dolomite and lime
stone deposits in Sy.No. 501, 503, 504, 505/C, A,B,D,E,G,H, 508/1A, 1B, 508/1,

During the inspection, it was observed that the mining is done by open caste
method in a descending order by exposing the ore body by forming benches. The
activities responsible for air pollution in the mining area are drilling , blasting digging,
loading and transporting of material. The industry is wetting the ground before and after
drilling and during blasting operations to avoid fugitive emissions. The industry is spraying
water on the haulage roads to control the fugitive emissions on regular intervals. The
industry had constructed a pond across the water course which flowing through the mining
area, to arrest the minerals being carried away along with run off during the rainy seasons.
The industry had planted about 9200 saplings in an area of about 10.0 acres. The industry
is also operating the stone crushing unit within the mine lease area for which valid CFO is
having upto 31-03-2011.

In view of the above, the CFO order of the board may be considered to this unit for
the period of three years i.e., upto 31-03-2011 by stipulating necessary conditions.
