It was most encouraging to see the excellent progress made with the reforestation of the mill tailing dumps . Such success in encouraging tree growth in poor soil conditions, will serve as a fine example in environmental management for other similar enterprises.

Hearty Congratulations.

Dear Mr. Beeramoideen,
When my colleague, Dr.Bernard Ritey, and I visited KGF on march 1st, you very kindly showed us your most impressive reforestation of mine dumps . Bernard, who has seen many mines, said your program was by far the best that he had seen. We are both very grateful to you for your informative and comprehensive tour. With thanks and greetings from us both, and I enclose a few photographs as a souvenir of that tour .

Yours sincerely

Mr. U.V.Beeramoideen,
I greatly appreciate the opportunity of visiting the Kolar Gold Mines. In India, the environmental issues associated with mining are commonly so much more marked than in other countries, because of the social issues caused by highly populated areas close to the mines. Therefore I was pleased to see the good efforts you have made towards vegetating the tailings dumps at Kolar. You have produced a sustainable woodland, with the production of timber, fiber and medicinal products which make this land productive. This, I feel, is one of the main challenges facing all environmental officers in the mining sector. I wish you well in your future work. The mine is close to lines, and I hope it will be possible to ensure that the mine is left in a safe and stable condition, with no risk of long term erosion, collapse, or pollution.

Thank you again, and good luck with your future work.

In a totally barren area, particularly on the tailing dump, commendable results have been achieved. Experiments with micorrhiza is interesting. I had visited M/s Bharat Gold Mines Limited, K.G.F. in connection with the forestry program being implemented by them. The results obtained, more particularly on the tailing dumps, are impressive. I was also happy to note that different types of experiments have been initiated by Sri Beeramoideen, Asst. conservator of Forests, With good results. I feel that if not for his zeal and enterprise the program would not have gone through in the manner in which it has nor would the protection of the plantations have been possible.

I have visited the tailings reforestation project. The reforestation is excellent and is to be highly commended. It is an excellent example for others to follow in the future. I have seen many examples of reforestation and revegetation in the United States and feel your work is outstanding.
