The Geological Survey and Mines Bureau notes that a proper mechanism will be implemented to prevent the irregularities in exporting soil that is a by-product of the jewellery industry.
 
Its Chairman, Asela Iddawela made this statement in response to an inquiry made by our news team.
 
Our news team made this inquiry as several reports have been published that a racket is underway to export soil containing fragments of gold, estimated to be worth over Rs. 500 million. 
 
Customs has been holding on 15 containers of soil scheduled to be exported to India, for over 8 months. 
 
Customs had detained several soil containers on several previous occasions as well for attempting to export without obtaining the necessary approval from the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau.
 
A fine had also been imposed on several exporters.
 
However, the Chairman of the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau stated that measures will be taken in this regard as constant attempts are made to export soil containing fragments of gold.
