Barsua iron ore mine is situated 1100 kilometres southeast of New Delhi in the Indian state of Odisha. 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. The Barsua mining complex saw limited output between 2014 and 2018 (mainly from stockpiles) as mining from the Barsua deposit was halted. It reopened in May 2018 and the complex reached capacity of 6 Mtpa in 2019 in order to meet demand from the nearby Rourkela steel plant. SAIL has plans to expand its steel capacity and with it, its iron ore production in Barsua to approximately 16 million tonnes. The plan is still in proposal stage and hence has not been included in the forecasts for this mine.
