karnataka's iron ore offtake falls drastically in q1; steel mills resort to sourcing from odisha | deccan herald

Between April and June 2021, about 2.3 million tonnes out of 8.4 million tonnes put on e-auction were left unsold, which is about 27% of the total quantity. The material was left unsold in Karnataka e-auctions mainly due to the oversupply created by imports from Odisha. The material produced especially from the Chitradurga mines has not been lifted by the end-users, according to data available with the Federation of Indian Mineral Industries (FIMI).

Despite a large quantity of iron ore is available in the state currently, some of the steel mills have imported the raw material from Odisha. It is estimated that around 5 lakh tonnes have been sourced from Odisha during the first two months of the current fiscal, FIMI said in a letter to Pralhad Joshi, Union Minister for Coal, Mines & Parliamentary Affairs.

As a result, the Karnataka government is set to lose an estimated royalty revenue of over Rs 150 crore in this period. In addition to this, the government is also losing contributions from miners towards the SPV fund, district mineral fund (DMF), NMET, and GST revenues, sources told DH.

Karnataka's iron ore production for 2021-22 has been estimated at 43 million tonnes against the maximum demand of 37 million tonnes. The rise in production this year is owing to the reopening of the Donimalai mine by public sector miner NMDC.

Due to the influx of material from outside the state, around 2 million tonnes of iron ore were left unsold during the e-auctions. "This deliberate import of iron ore despite surplus availability within the state puts the domestic industry under undue pressure to reduce the price to achieve the sale of material, FIMI said.

"This distorted price reduction is a double whammy since it not only reduces rightful contribution to the state exchequer in the form of royalty, SPV, DMF & NMET which is around 30% of sale value but also impacts the bid premium contribution by C Category and fresh auctioned miners wherein bid premium is directly proportional to the sales price. Any artificial reduction of the sales price directly affects bid premium," FIMI added in its letter.

The miners body has also appealed to the minister to intervene urgently and facilitate a level playing field to Karnataka's iron ore mining sector by allowing free market forces to operate. This will help in restoring the right price discovery mechanism and benefits the state exchequer.

rio tinto to deploy worlds first fully autonomous water trucks at gudai-darri iron ore mine - green car congress

Rio Tinto will deploy the worlds first fully autonomous water trucks at its $2.6-billion Gudai-Darri iron ore mine in Western Australias Pilbara region. The new vehicles, primarily used for dust suppression on site, will enhance productivity by enabling mine operations to track water consumption digitally and reduce waste.

Developed through a successful collaboration with Caterpillar, three water trucks will join Gudai-Darris fleet of Caterpillar heavy mobile equipment including autonomous haul trucks and production drills. The vehicles intelligent on-board system detects dry and dusty conditions on site, triggering the application of water to roads to keep them in good condition.

The refilling process is also completely automated with the water trucks recognizing when it is time to refill, prompting them to self-drive to the water stand, park and top-up before returning to the field. They feature a 160,000-liter tank capacity, a 33% increase on Rio Tintos largest water truck which has a tank capacity of 120,000-liters.

Once deployed, the water trucks will be integrated into Rio Tintos existing Autonomous Haulage System which has been shown to significantly improve safety by reducing the risks associated with operators working around heavy machinery.

We have worked closely with Caterpillar to safely and successfully deploy the worlds first fully autonomous water truck. Water spraying is a vital part of mining operations and this new technology will improve productivity and reduce water usage across our operations. The continued expansion of our autonomous fleet helps improve safety and continues Rio Tintos efforts to adopt world-leading technology to enhance our operations and realise our vision of making Gudai-Darri one of the worlds most technologically advanced mines.Rio Tinto Iron Ore chief executive Simon Trott

Gudai-Darri is 100% owned by Rio Tinto, is located approximately 35 kilometers north-west of Rio Tintos Yandicoogina mine site, and about 110 kilometers from the town of Newman in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Construction continues to progress with production ramp-up on track for early 2022. Once complete, the mine will have an annual capacity of 43 million tonnes, underpinning production of the Pilbara Blend, Rio Tintos flagship iron ore product.

all about iron ore reserves and production in india, new mines in odisha and other details

Durg Bastar Chandrapur Belt: This lies in Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra. It has extremely high grade hematite found in the Bailadila range of hills in Bastar region. There are 14 deposits of high grade hematite ore in this region. Iron from here is exported to Japan and Korea.

production and distribution of iron ore in india

The standard of living of the people of a country is judged by the consumption of iron. Iron is taken out from mines in the form of iron ore. Different types of iron ore contain varying percentage of pure iron.

This is the best quality of iron ore and contains 72 per cent pure iron. It possesses magnetic property and hence is called magnetite. It is found in Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand, Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

The total in situ reserves of iron ore in the country are about 12,317.3 million tonnes of haematite and 5395.2 million tonnes of magnetite. The resources of very high grade ore are limited and are restricted mainly in Bailadila sector of Chhattisgarh and to a lesser extent in Bellary-Hospet area of Karnataka and in Jharkhand and Orissa.

Haematite resources are located in Orissa, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Goa, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan. Magnetic resources are located in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Kerala, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu.

Although some quantity of iron ore is found in several parts of the country, the major part of the reserves are highly concentrated in a few selected areas. Only six states i.e. Jharkhand, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka and Goa account for over 95 per cent of the total reserves of India.

Jharkhand has the largest reserves accounting for about 25 per cent of the total reserves of India. This is followed by Orissa (21%), Karnataka (20%), Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh (18%) and Goa (11%). The remaining 5 per cent is shared by Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan and Assam. However, the pattern of actual production presents a slightly different picture (see Table 25.2).

It is worth mentioning that significant changes have taken place in the distribution pattern itself during the last few years. Earlier, Bihar (most of the iron producing areas has gone to Jharkhand now) was the largest producer which was excelled by Goa and Karnataka in quick succession. Goa occupied the first position among the major iron ore producing states for over a decade, but has been overtaken by Karnataka, Orissa and Chhattisgarh in due course of time.

At present, over 99 per cent of India s iron ore is produced by just five states of Karnataka, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Goa and Jharkhand. This fact speaks volumes of high concentration of iron ore reserves and their lopsided distribution in the country.

Iron ores are widely distributed in the state, but high grade ore deposits are those of Kemmangundi in Bababudan hills of Chikmagalur district and Sandur and Hospet in Bellary district. Most of the ores are high grade haematite and magnetite. The other important producing districts are Chitradurga, Uttar Kannad, Shimoga, Dharwar and Tumkur.

Orissa produces over 22 per cent iron ore of India. The most important deposits occur in Sundargarh, Mayurbhanj, Cuttack, Sambalpur, Keonjhar and Koraput districts. Indias richest haematite deposits are located in Barabil-Koira valley where 100 deposits are spread over 53 sq km. The ores are rich in haematites with 60 per cent iron content.

Sizeable deposits occur near Gorumahisani, Sulaipat and Badampahar in Mayurbhanj district; Banspani, Tahkurani, Toda, Kodekola, Kurband, Phillora and Kiriburu in Keonjhar district; near Malangtoli, Kandadhar Pahar, Koira and Barsua in Sundargarh district, Tomka range between Patwali and Kassa in Sukind area of Cuttack district, Daitari hill along the boundary between Keonjhar and Cuttack districts, Hirapur hills in Koraput district and Nalibassa hill in Sambalpur district.

Chhattisgarh has about 18 per cent of the total iron ore reserves of India. This state produced about 20 per cent of the total iron ore production of the country in 2002-03. The iron ores are widely distributed, the prominent deposits being those of Bastar and Durg districts.

The reserves in these districts are estimated to be of the order of 4,064 million tonnes. These reserves are of high grade ore, containing over 65 per cent iron. Bailadila in Bastar district and Dalli Rajhara in Durg district are important producers. In Bailadila, 14 deposits are located in 48 km long range running in north-south direction.

With estimated reserves of about 1,422 million tonnes, the Bailadila mine is the largest mechanised mine in Asia. An additional ore beneficiation plant with a capacity of 7.8 million tonnes is being set up in Bailadila. A 270 km long slurry pipeline is being constructed to bring the ore from the Bailadila pithead to the Vizag plant. This will reduce the pressure on road route to a great extent.

Bailadila produces high grade ore which is exported through Vishakhapatnam to Japan and other countries where it is in great demand. The Dalli-Rajhara range is 32 km long with iron ore reserves of about 120 million tonnes.

The ferrous content in this ore is estimated to be 68-69 per cent. The deposits of this range are being worked by the Hindustan Steels Plant at Bhilai. A new broad gauge rail line is planned to connect this range with Jagdalpur. Raigarh, Bilaspur, and Surguja are other iron ore producing districts.

Production of iron ore in Goa started quite late and it is a recent development. Starting from a non-identity, Goa is now the fourth largest producer of iron ore in India. Though its reserves, amounting to only 11 per cent of India, are not very impressive as compared to other major producing states, it occupied the first position among the iron ore producers for several years and yielded this place to M.P. in 1990s.

At present, Karantaka, Orissa and Chhattisgarh produce more iron ore, relegating Goa to fourth place. Goa now produces over 18 per cent of the total production of India. In 1975, the Geological Survey of India located 34 iron bearing reserves with estimated the total ore deposits of 390 million tonnes. There are nearly 315 mines in North Goa, Central Goa and South Goa.

Important deposits occur in Pima-Adolpale-Asnora, Sirigao-Bicholim-Daldal, Sanquelim-Onda, Kudnem-Pisurlem and Kudnem-Surla areas in North Goa; Tolsia-Dongarvado-Sanvordem and Quirapale-Santone-Costi in Central Goa; and Borgadongar, Netarlim, Rivona-Solomba and Barazan in South Goa.

The richest ore deposits are located in North Goa. These areas have the advantage of river transport or ropeways for local transport and that of Marmagao port for exporting the ore. Most of Goas iron ore is exported to Japan.

Most of the ore is of low grade limo-mite and siderite. Most of the mines are open-caste and mechanised which result in efficient exploitation of iron ore in spite of its inferior quality. About 34,000 people earn their livelihood from iron ore mining and allied activities in Goa.

Jharkhand accounts for 25 per cent of reserves and over 14 per cent of the total iron ore production of the country. Iron ore mining first of all started in the Singhbhum district in 1904 (then a part of Bihar). Iron ore of Singhbhum district is of highest quality and will last for hundreds of years.

The main iron bearing belt forms a range about 50 km long extending from near Gua to near Pantha in Bonai (Orissa). The other deposits in Singhbhum include those of Budhu Buru, Kotamati Burn and Rajori Buru. The well known Noamandi mines are situated at Kotamati Buru. Magnetite ores occur near Daltenganj in Palamu district. Less important magnetite deposits have been found in Santhal Parganas, Hazaribagh, Dhanbad and Ranchi districts.

Apart from the major producing states described above, iron ore in small quantities is produced in some other states also. They include Maharashtra : Chandrapur, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg; Tamilnadu : Salem, North Arcot Ambedkar, Tiruchirapalli, Coimbatore, Madurai, Nellai Kattabomman (Tirunelveli); Andhra Pradesh : Kumool, Guntur, Cuddapah, Ananthapur, Khammam, Nellore; Rajasthan : Jaipur, Udaipur, Alwar, Sikar, Bundi, Bhilwara; Uttar Pradesh ; Mirzapur, Uttaranchal : Garhwal, Almora, Nainital; Himachal Pradesh : Kangra and Mandi; Haryana : Mahendragarh; West Bengal: Burdwan, Birbhum, Darjeeling; Jammu and Kashmir : Udhampur and Jammu; Gujarat: Bhavnagar, Junagadh, Vadodara; and Kerala : Kozhikode.

India is the fifth largest exporter of iron ore in the world. We export about 50 to 60 per cent of our total iron ore production to countries like Japan, Korea, European countries and lately to Gulf countries. Japan is the biggest buyer of Indian iron ore accounting for about three-fourths of our total exports. Major ports handling iron ore export are Vishakhapatnam, Paradip, Marmagao and Mangalore.

Efforts are being made to increase the production so that sufficient quantity of iron ore is available for export after meeting the requirements of the expanding home market. Export of iron ore is necessary for earning the much needed foreign exchange. Some success has been achieved in this direction as is evident from the export figures for the year 2002-03 and 2003-04 (see Table 25.3).

Indian Ferro Chrome prices increased amid improved global market conditions. In China, there is decrease in VAT rates from 16% to 13% which would have been effective from 1st Apr19, but the notification is still awaited. Therefore, the buyers are showing reluctance in buying any stock further as the prices in the domestic market would reduce once the VAT is down at 13%. However, in South Africa, power tariffs are going up and the supply is going down. With the depiction of supply tightness in the global market in the upcoming period Indian producers have raised their offers in the market.

Domestic prices for Ferro Chrome in India is assessed to be in the range of INR 74,000/MT to INR 75,000/MT. Export prices for CNF South Korea (10-50mm, HC 60%) is 86 cents/lb, for CNF Japan(10-50mm, HC 60%) is 87 cents/lb and for CNF China(10-150mm, HC 60%) is around 84-84 cents/lb. On the future outlook, global buyers are likely to follow the Chinese market and global Ferro Chrome prices are expected to go up in line with Chinese Prices. Indian producers are also trying to push up the prices on higher Chrome Ore prices in India and tighter Ferro Chrome supply expected in the coming days from South Africa.

mining companies in india: profiling nine of the country's biggest

It produces iron from three fully mechanised mines one in Donimalai, Karnataka and two in Bailadila, Chhattisgarh which supply raw material to manufacturers Essar Steel, Ispat Industries and Vikram Ispat, in addition to the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.

Part of the Vedanta Group, it is also involved in the mining of copper, iron ore and aluminium,based mainly in Goa, Odisha, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Punjab Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh.

It operates the worlds largest zinc mine in Rampura Agucha, Rajasthan, which has an ore production capacity of 6.15 million MT per annum, in addition to severalzinc and lead smelters and refineries in the state.

National Aluminium CompanyNational Aluminium Company (NALCO) was incorporated as a public sector enterprise belonging to the Government of Indias Ministry of Mines in 1981, which retains a 60.2% stake in the company.

Before long, the company progressed to earning a lignite mining lease at Panandhro, Kutch in 1976, whose operations paved the way for GMDC to construct its first one million tonne capacity lignite mine in 2015 at Umarsar, Kutch.
