NMDC to commission new iron ore mines.
NMDC will commission its new iron ore mines -Deposit -11B in Bailadila sector of Chhattisgarh and Kumaraswamy in Donimalai sector of Karnataka - in March and August of next year.
At a performance review meeting at the Steel Ministry recently, NMDC officials said the two mines will add up 14 million tonnes output capacity, which would help the public sector miner increase production levels substantially The delayed projects forced NMDC to keep output growth target at low levels in recent years. The Steel Ministry has asked NMDC to increase iron ore production at a faster clip in the next few years than envisaged.
