Vedanta suspends work at Bicholim iron ore mine in Goa

Mining conglomerate Vedanta has suspended mining operations at its Bicholim iron ore mine in Goa, citing “safety and security” reasons in the wake of growing labour unrest.

The suspension has been in force from October 13 at the Bicholim mine, located at village Amona in Bicholim Taluka of north Goa.

“The management of Sesa Mining Corporation, through this publication would, hereby, like to inform that union representatives along with their workmen have been continuously indulging in illegal and unjustified acts,” Vedanta said in a public notice on October 14.

Sesa Mining Corporation, a part of Vedanta, has around 462 direct and 190 indirect employees at its Bicholim mine.
