6 ore blocks to be auctioned by Oct

.........BHUBANESWAR: THE State Government has lined up six more mineral blocks for auction by October. These include five iron ore, and one limestone block. The issue was discussed at the first meeting of State Facilitation Committee under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary AP Padhi here. Earlier, the Steel and Mines department had planned to auction seven mineral blocks, including a graphite mine, by December. The Chief Secretary directed the department to expedite the process for auctioning of more mining blocks in the State. With 32 mining leases expiring by March 31, 2020, the State Government has formed a committee to take stock of their exploration status. A six-month reporting system is developed where updates regarding the exploration activities carried out are collected from the lease holders. The State Government has assigned the job of exploration of 7 mines for upgradation from G3 to G2 level to Mineral Exploration Corporation of India (MECL), a Government of India concern, reports of which are awaited, official sources said. A mineral block with G2 level of exploration has better clarity on the quantity of mineral reserve in the block, which makes it easy for the Government to decide base price and set norms for auction. Such blocks are put up in the auctions for Mining Licenses (ML), the sources added. The meeting reviewed the progress of the five mining blocks auctioned in the State so far. Taking a project-wise review, Padhi directed the departments concerned to expedite the process for issue of various clearances and approvals for starting mining operations. Collectors and Divisional Forest Officers of the district concerned were asked to facilitate the process expeditiously. The five mining mineral blocks auctioned in the State include Ghoraburhani-Sagasahi iron ore mine of Sundargarh district, Kalamanga west iron ore block in Keonjhar and Sundargarh districts, Netrabandha iron ore block of Sundargarh district, Kottametta limestone block in Malkangiri district, Laserda-Pacheri manganese ore block in Keonjhar district. Issues relating to forest clearances, environmental clearances, DGPS survey, approval of mining plan, wild life management plan, land acquisition, organization of Gram Sabha, land mutation, railway siding approval, and working permission were discussed and resolved in the meeting. The five mining mineral blocks auctioned in the State include Ghoraburhani-Sagasahi iron ore mine of Sundargarh district, Kalamanga west iron ore block in Keonjhar and Sundargarh districts, Netrabandha iron ore block of Sundargarh district, Kottametta limestone block in Malkangiri district, Laserda-Pacheri manganese ore block in Keonjhar district.
