Though by early 1700's Portuguese stated iron ore mining in Goa, was not brought to the notice of the world for fear of invasion by others. However, tribe known as Dovolos, based in Navelim and other areas of Salcette extracted iron ore through the entire Portuguese period. After the World Wars as demand soared for the reconstruction mining really took off. When Goa liberated in 1961 around 800 mining permissions were granted. en_US
