Report summary

Barsua iron ore mine is situated 1100 kilometres southeast of New Delhi in the Indian state of Odisha. Iron ore has been mined at Barsua since 1960. The mine is one of five captive operations in eastern India owned and operated by SAIL, the government-owned Steel Authority of India Limited. The mine primarily supplies iron ore to SAIL's Rourkela Steel Plant located 65 kilometres to the north.SAIL is currently expanding its steel capacity and therefore hoped to increase its total iron ore production from 17 million tonnes to approximately 34 million tonnes. As part of these expansions, SAIL would like to increase Barsua's production its current rate of 3 Mtpa (raw) to 6 Mtpa (raw) but ongoing permitting issues are causing delays. We have therefore assumed production remains at 4.0 Mtpa (raw).
