Yes, it is true that “Mineral resources in India are unevenly distributed.” India is one such country which acquires rich and different types of mineral resources. The uneven distribution is due to the fact that India as a country has variation in Geological structure, processes and difference in time involved in the formation of minerals. Three examples to support this statement are as follows:

• The majority of the coal reserves, metallic minerals, Mica and other non-metallic minerals are found in peninsular rocks.


• Most of the petroleum deposits are found sedimentary rocks in the Western and Eastern flanks of the Peninsula, in Gujarat and Assam.
