Description:

Kolar Gold Fields in the State of Karnataka are reported to have been mined for gold during the last 2000 years or so. The systematic mining for gold in this area during modern times was started by an English mining firm, John Taylor & Sons in 1880. The mines were taken over by the Government of Mysore in 1956 and by the Government of India in 1962. The stamp depicts a miner drilling for ore along with representation of molten gold being poured into a mould and a few gold bricks.
