SAIL iron ore mines achieve 15 percent production growth

Aug 6,2019


The iron ore mines of Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) produced and despatched 18.27 lakh tonne and 18.86 lakh tonne of iron ore in July 2019, posting a growth of 15.2 percent and 11.7 percent over the same period last year.


The mines, which come under Steel Authority of India Limited’s Raw Materials Division (RMD), not only met the entire iron ore needs of SAIL’s eastern sector steel plants but also supplemented the need of Bhilai Steel Plant to certain extent from time to time, an official statement said.


Individually Raw Materials Division’s Bolani, Kiriburu, and Meghahatuburu mines crossed the July production target. Bolani, Kalta and Raw Materials Division Mines in total achieved their best-ever July performance in lump production and despatch since inception. This was driven by improved operational efficiency and availability of rakes.


In Flux production, Kuteshwar Mines achieved best-ever July producing 1.16 lakh tonne of limestone.
