KCCL is executing the same activitiesthat are being carried out at Sukinda Chromite Mines (SCM).

JILLING-LANGALOTA IRON & MANGANESE MINE, OMC


Jilling-Langalota Iron & Manganese Mine is situated in Barbil Tehsil of Keonjhar District.The nearest railway station is Jaroli in South Eastern Railway at about 3 KM from the mine.

The mine is going to be operated with a PeakRated Capacity of5987000 MT per year.KCCL won the contract of JillingLangalota Iron and Manganese minesin the tender floated by Odisha Mining Corporation.KCCL started mining activities after OMC handed over its site on 16th February 2021. This is an old mine being operated since last 2 decades with railway infrastructure within its leasehold area.

Chief Minister Shri. Naveen Patnaik and Union Minister of Mines Shri. Pralhad Joshi jointly inaugurated the production in the above mentioned mine through video conference on 18th February 2021. This mine will add an annual turnover of Rs. 111.58 Crores to KCCL’s exchequer.

BOT PROJECT AT DAITARI IRON ORE MINE, OMC


This fully Mechanized Old Mine of 2.0 MTPA capacity, commissioned in 1974 could not achieve more than 30 % of the Capacity as the Crushing and Ore Handling Plant (OHP) was the major bottle neck.

KCCL accepted the challenge of BOT contract for modification of OHPand completed in record time. But commencement of operation was delayed for nearly 3 Years due to delay in Statutory Clearance. Starting in November 2014, this project immediately achieved rated capacity in 2014-15 and 2015-16. During 2016-17 with production of 2.63 MTPA,KCCL successfully produced 2.61 million MT in 2017-18, 2.30 Million MT in 2018-19 and 3.0 Million MT in 2019-20 and also in 2020-21.

The capacity of the mine has been enhanced to 3.0 MTPA with scope of production of 4.5 MTPA.It is now planned to enhance the annual production to 6.0 MTPA subject to approval of OMC and other statutory bodies.

Hilltop Iron Ore Mines


The Hilltop Iron Ore Mine awarded by Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC) to KCCL in the year 2017, is now running at a production capacity of 4.5 MTPA. Despite the highly discontinuous nature of deposit and bad weather conditions, KCCL never failed to achieve its production target within given period. Now the Planning is to make the mines a capacity of 6 MTPA.

South Kaliapani Chromite Ore Mines (Quarry-F):


With a new contract awarded by Odisha Mining Corporation Ltd, KCCL has started mining operation in February 2020 for development of Quarry–F of South Kaliapani Chromite Mines requiring an average of 60,00,000 CuM. of excavation per annum for 7 years.

This virgin chrome ore deposit will bring an additional annual turnover of around Rs. 80 Crores per annum. Now the mine is running at a capacity of 40,00,000 CuM. per annum which will be enhanced to 78,00,000 CuM. per annum by the beginning of the 4th year of the contract. In addition to excavation of Chromite ore and overburden KCCL is performing the transportation, pumping of water from the pit and stacking of chrome ore according to their grade. KCCL has a highly expert and skilled team for smooth running of this project in Quarry-F.

DECO Putulpani Iron Ore Mines at Gandhamardan:

Putulpani Iron Ore Mines is now running with a production capacity of 1.5 MTPA. KCCL is now successfully running this mine with better productivity and now planning to expand the mine to a capacity of 3 MTPA in recent years. KCCL is operating this mine on a sub-contract basis.

Starting with a target of 0.5 MTPA, the company could achieve more than 1.5 MTPA till the mine was closed for the absence of statutory clearance. In this area, the company has developed the expertise of local people of working in Open Cast Mechanized Mine. The ROM ore and overburden/ waste are loosened by drilling and blasting. Overburden is separately taken to waste dump while ore is taken to crusher, both by loader/ shovel and dumper combination. After Crushing and Screening mostly CLO (size +10-40mm) and Fines (size -10mm) are separately transported to respective stockyards. The mine uses multiple auxiliary equipment for supporting various mining activities in an eco-friendly manner. This expertise and existing facilities, at present contract gives the opportunity for operating adjacent mines in the near future.

Kalta Iron Ore Mines, SAIL:


KCCL has started this project in recent September 2019 and got the project for the period of 3 years with annual production target of 2.17 MTPA. It is the mine where KCCL is handling the blasted ore both manually and mechanically. Here, the production of iron ore is being done with the deployment of hydraulic drills, excavators, loaders, tippers etc. After sizing the ore is being transported to the railway siding at Roxy for loading into wagons.
