Around 35 % of India's Graphite deposits is found in Arunachal Pradesh. The State could be the leading producer of graphite in the country in future.
Thus, the survey and drilling activities of the GSI should be moved towards the lndo-China international Border. Development of road towards the international border should be a boon for exploration of the mineral.
