Nanotechnology: Depleting the most precious minerals for a few dollars

Many have written for many years about the mineral sands of Pulmoddai. It is a national tragedy that for more than 50 years, we have been depleting the most precious minerals of our land for a few dollars. There are articles that appeared in various newspapers on how the mineral sands industry has boomed over the years. I hope the readers understand that it only means that we are depleting our resources faster than ever. According to the Lanka Mineral Sands Limited website, 90,000 tonnes of ilmenite, 9,000 tonnes of rutile, 5,500 tonnes of zircon, 100 tonnes of monazite and 4,000 tonnes of high titanium ilmenite are produced annually and shipped away to other countries. – See more at: http://www.nation.lk/edition/free/item/30419-nanotechnology-depleting-the-most-precious-minerals-for-a-few-dollars.html#sthash.CZCmITcc.dpuf
