SAIL’s Bhilai Steel plant is currently using iron ore fines from its captive Dalli-Rajhara iron ore mines. However, it is fastly depleting and its quality is dwindling. To set right, the company is planning to set up a pelletization plant to make use of low quality iron ore fines. Currently, the low quality iron ore fines and slurry were sent to NMDC labs for testing. Now, SAIL has received environmental clearance for its Rowghat mines which has an estimated reserves of 500 million tonnes, however development will take time and production can start only by 2012.
