Els: L'India mette all'asta 80 vecchie miniere d'oro

Il Tempio d'oro di Amritsar, nel Punjab, vicino al confine pakistano

Un disperato governo indiano, nel tentativo di migliorare il deficit commerciale del paese, oltre che avere allo studio progetti per far portare in banca l'oro dal suo miliardo e 250 milioni cittadini attraverso dei bond in oro che pagherebbero un interesse (già tentati in passato e sostanzialmente falliti perché l'interesse era troppo basso) sta studiano anche di riaprire vecchie miniere d'oro in giro per il paese vendendole all'asta:
The Guardian reports that this may be about to change and quotes Balvinder Kumar, of the mines ministry as saying studies by state governments have uncovered "some very deep and old mines" with gold worth more $3.9 billion existing in the Kolar region in the southern state of Karnataka alone. The ministry will put about 80 mines to auction within two or three months: 
Kolar was first mined by British companies at the end of the 19th century, said Bridget White-Kumar, a local author and historian. In 1850 a retired Irish soldier who had fought in the army of the East India Company during its campaigns to seize the princedom of Mysore investigated reports of mines in the region. Over the decades that followed, the project and a thriving community grew. 
But most of the gold was sent back to London, White-Kumar said. Kolar’s mine was nationalised in 1956 and finally shut down in 2001. White-Kumar said: “The glorious period was until the mid-1970s. There were a lot of unions that couldn’t agree with each other and costs were mounting. The gold was sold under the market rate. As a community, we haven’t come to turns with it even now. This news is what we have been waiting for.
