Kasia is an open pit mine located 426 kilometres north-west of Paradip port, in the Keonjhar district in the Indian state of Odisha. The mine was closed in 2013 due to legal disputes over forestry clearance certificates. The mines leases also expired in 2020. Jindal Steel & Power Limited won Kasia's mining lease during the auction process. Production restarted in 2022 and ramp up is expected to full capacity of 7.6 Mtpa ROM by 2028, there are however risks to this forecast given the history of delays in permitting and compliance issues.
