Report summaryBailadila is a complex comprising of two large surface mines, Bacheli and Kirandul, and is approximately 1,400 kilometres south-east of New Delhi in the Indian province of Chhattisgarh. The mine is owned and operated by the state-owned mining company NMDC. The mine's capacity is being expanded to 35Mtpa. In the past Bailadila's rail, conveyor and pipeline infrastructure has been attacked by Naxalites, which has affected iron ore production. To help reduce these threats NMDC is building a 400 kilometre, 15Mtpa pipeline to transport iron ore slurry from Bailadila to Vizag port following the route of national highways. Existing rail and pipeline infrastructure passes through dense forest and is vulnerable to Naxalite attacks.
