Bailadila 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. With encouragement from the Indian Government, NMDC is planning to raise its production capacity to 67 Mtpa by 2022. This is less than was originally planned and we still consider it ambitious so have limited NMDC's production to 49 Mtpa with 35 Mtpa being contributed by Bailadila in 2024. We have based our production expansion for Bailadila on known expansion projects already announced by NMDC. For 2018 we expect Bailadila to produce 22.5 Mt, marginally up from 22.3 Mt in 2017, primarily due to the additional production from the newly commissioned Deposit 11B. Future ramp up is expected to be gradual because project progress has traditionally been delayed by technical and climate issues in India.
