Daily Pioneer reported that NMDC Ltd is targeting to achieve 10 million tonnes of iron ore production per annum from each of its mines in Chhattisgarh by 2024-25. Official sources informed that the company has also sought 7.116 hectares forest land diversion for its iron ore concentrate pipeline in Dantewada district of Bastar.

Officials informed that notably, NMDC will also be seeking Right of Use (ROU) / Right of Way (ROW) permission for developing a land corridor for its Slurry Pipeline project from Bailadila to Nagarnar in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh.

NMDC, which is in the process of laying a 15 million tonnes per annum slurry pipeline is executing the project in two phases.

The first phase is being executed from Bacheli to Nagarnar in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh at an estimated outlay of INR 4,000 crore; and the second phase will be executed from Nagarnar to Vizag in Andhra Pradesh at an outlay of INR 6,000 crore, officials informed.

Notably, to transport pellet feed concentrate from Bailadila to Vizag via Jagdalpur, the company will have the pipeline laid along the highways with a provision of partial off-take to feed its proposed 3 million tonnes per annum Steel plant coming up at Nagarnar.

The blast furnace to be used for manufacturing steel at NMDC Ltd’s upcoming 3 million tonnes per annum Steel Plant at Nagarnar in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh could also emerge as one of India’s largest when commissioned at the plant.

Officials informed that the company has commenced work for setting up the 2.0 million tonnes per annum Pellet Plant at Nagarnar near Jagdalpur in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh.
