Geological surveys conducted recently have revealed a gold deposit of 100 sq. kilometres buried in an area centring Seruwawila, Geological Survey and Mine Bureau (GSMB) Chairman Asela Iddawela said.

The Chairman said he hoped to seek foreign investors willing to work in accordance with the policies and procedures adopted by the bureau to join with the GSMB to carry out further surveys based on the data and geological elements available.

GSMB Director-General Dr.C.H.E.R. Siriwardena also affirmed the presence of gold ore within the Seruwawila copper and iron deposit in an area of about 100 kilometres in Arippu and Kollakulam.

    All humbug, another ruse to pocket commissions. Remember Fowzie's adventure in Mannar basis for oil, he minted commissions enough for two generations of his family.

    Please do not offer these resources to foreign "jackals". Just see what has happened to African countries.

    Economically viable? Might be more economical to bring it from another planet or asteroid!

    Is this a ruse for someone to sell his land? Sure the land prices will be too hot to touch now!
