The north western part of kutch district of Gujarat is a potential source of many minerals, viz. limestone, clay, bauxite, siderite, gypsum etc. yet the industrial development has not taken place mainly for the acute shortage of power rendering thereby the whole area industrially backward. Exploration and development of the lignite resources of this region may, however, solve this power crisis and increase thereby the viability of industrialization utilizing the locally available minerals. For instance, limestone can be used in the cement industry, clay deposits in the ceramic industry, red ochre deposits in the dyes and pigment industry, siderite for hydrogen production and gypsum for calcium sulphide production. The present paper deals primarily with the evaluation studies of the mineral resources occurring in panandhro and its adjoining area.
