Batting a Glorious Fifty is not a small achievement for any one, whether it is the Batsman or a Corporate. GMDC was incorporated on 15th May, 1963 to develop major Mineral Resources in the State and it started with a Silica Sand Quarrying Plant near Surajdeval (Dist. Surendranagar) for crushing and screening of Silica Sand required for Glass Industry. From this humble beginning, GMDC today boasts of a vast array of Mineral Portfolio in its mineral rich basket.
The Fledgling State acutely needed to have a rapid Industrial Development, which required Fuel and Energy resources. This motive inspired the state to incorporate a Public Sector Company that would target exclusive development of Mineral Resources endowed on the state. Thus, began a historical journey which has today reached a milestone of Glorious fifty eight years.
That ageless and endless journey has traversed through some of the most exciting milestones.
