The deputy minister for mines and mineral industries has predicted a 6 percent growth for the mining industry in the second half of the Iranian year (September 23 – March 20). In an interview with Mehr news agency, Mehdi Karbasian said the government has started a plan to develop the industry and therefore the sector is expected to experience large growth in the coming years. “We predict that the mining sector and its dependent industries will thrive,” he added. The deputy minister said that the only way to give a boost to the mining and mineral processing industries is to both largely invest in the sector and effectively improve management.
