|The deposit of barytes which is described here lies to
the western bottom of the Chakarda Hill. Chakrada Hill
is situated in village Surajpur which is named as Khura in
the topo-sheet. The barytes occurs in the form of a vein
running north-west to south-east, i.e., it follows the -direction
of Chakarda Hill. The deposit can be reached either
from Mau-Ranipur Station or from Lalitpur. Tikamgarh, by
the metalled road, is at a distance of 36 miles from Lalitpur.
If the same road is followed further, whichgoes to MauRanipur,
at a distance of 5 miles from Tikamgarh a
kachha road branches off. Beldeogarh, is situated at a
distance of 10 miles on this road. From Baldeogarh,
Surajpur via Deorda is at a distance of about 8 miles.
Thus the locality where barytes is found is about 59 miles

18 miles kachha. The carts can very easily go on the
kachha road and if it is repaired, the lorry can also reach
the place. The way from Mau-Ranipur lies on the same
road which runs from Mau-Ranipur to Tikamgarh.
From this road, a cart road deviates from village Majna
which is situated at a distance of 30 miles from MauRanipur.
From Majna, Baldeogarh is about 9 miles and
from Baldeogarh Surajpur is 8 miles. Thus Mau-Ranipur
is 47 miles of which 17 miles is ka11hlta road, and 30 miles
pucca road. If the goods are to be carried to Bombay,
Lalitpur will be the proper station for loading while for
Calcutta and other places of Northern India, Ma.u-Ranipur
will be a suitable loading station.
