ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel (AMNS) India has begun operations at its Ghoraburhani-Sagasahi iron ore mine in Odisha.
The mine will produce 2mn mt of iron ore by the end of 2021 and will progressively boost output to reach its rated capacity of 7.16mn mt per year, according to reports.
Iron ore produced will be delivered to the Dubuna beneficiation plant and from there the supply will move to Paradeep’s pellet plant.
The iron ore zone’s resources are estimated at about 98.61mn mt and per reports, is the first to be auctioned in India through the Mineral Auction Rule, 2015.
This update follows AM/NS India’s news last week that it commissioned the second 6mn mt pellet plant in Odisha, which doubles annual capacity at the Paradeep facility to 12mn mt.
