NMDC gets environmental clearance for Rs 1,095 cr iron ore project

NMDC Ltd has received environmental clearance for setting up of Rs 1,095 crore iron ore beneficiation plant at Dantewada district, Chhattisgarh.

The State-run iron ore producer plans to set up the unit to produce iron ore concentrate (in slurry form) suitable for making pellets and transport the same through ‘slurry pipeline transporation system’ from Bacheli in Dantewada district to Nagarnar in Bastar district.

“NMDC had sought the environment clearance (EC) for both installation of Iron Ore Beneficiation Plant as well as for Slurry Pipeline System. However, the EC has been granted for setting up of a plant,” a senior government official was quoted as saying by PTI.

The official further said the company has been asked to get a separate EC for the slurry pipeline since the forest clearance for it has not yet been obtained.
