The mine operated by Tarcar through Power of Attorney at
Temebocheo Dongor in rural Goa (survey number 59/51) has been
found to have been extracted several million tons of Ore.
The data provided by Mines and Geology department has
specified that Tarcar’s mining lease was allowed to extract
only three million metric tons annually as per the Environment
Clearance granted to him.
