Gold found in UP, India

India was once called a golden bird with a lot of wealth, but with changing times, different invaders looted the treasure. Sometimes the Mughals set eyes on the treasury, sometimes the British executed the loot. The richness of India can be gauged from a large number of minerals in the Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh.

Amidst the discovery of mineral elements that have been going on for many years, there has been news of hidden gold worth about Rs 12 lakh crore inside the ground. A geophysical survey is being done by helicopters in many land parts of the district. In this survey, the location of gold is being detected with the help of some special equipment. Some part of these instruments hangs under the helicopter which conducts a flying survey at an altitude of 60-80 meters above the ground surface.

By the way, this is not the first time that such a large stock of minerals has been discovered. In South Africa, it has got the status of ‘City of Gold’ after getting mine of gold. Now a large amount of gold in Sonbhadra’s ‘Sonhill’ has shone in the eyes of the whole world. In 2018, there was news that during the mining of mines in Australia, two gold rocks were found. The value of this treasure was estimated at Rs 80 crore. After the mines of Australia and South Africa, Sonbhadra’s name has also blossomed.
