RUKUM EAST: A comprehensive study has been initiated again to excavate iron mines in Rukum (East).

A feasibility study has been initiated for excavation since last week following detection of iron mine in Bhume rural municipality.

A team consisting of geologists of the Department of Mines and Geology Sujan Devkota and Saunak Bhandari started carrying out feasibility study in Bhume rural municipality-3, Jhumlabang.

The task of comprehensive study did not gain momentum in the past due to financial reason.

Bhume Chairperson Hom Prakash Shrestha informed that study has started in several places of the rural municipality about iron mines.

Locals also informed that iron mine excavations are taking place in the areas where iron mines were detected earlier.
