The paper discusses the land damage assessment and change detection analysis with reference to a mineral bearing zone in Manjhi, Manuni and Churan valleys. The area is located in environmentally sensitive and fragile region of Himalaya and constitutes of nearly 400 small-scale mines of slate, which were operative since last one hundred years and are stopped by court of law since 1995 on account of environmelat deterioration. The status of land degradation has been studied using IRS-1B satellite data of 1988, 1992 and 1995. The geocoded data on 1:50,000 scale has been interpreted and an increase in land degradation status was noticed. Finally, the management strategy for arresting the further land damage in a broader perspective is suggested.
