Steel firms fear NPAs on iron ore export move 18.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
After Karnataka miners' threat to move the Supreme Court (SC) this week to allow them to export iron ore, the state steel manufacturers have also gone aggressive in their opposition to it. Ramana Kumar, secretary of Karnataka Iron and Steel Manufacturers' Association (Kisma), told DNA Money that if the state-owned National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) and the private miners were permitted to export, iron ore shortage will further increase and result in more non-performing assets (NPAs) and plant shutdowns in the steel industry. "The shortage (of iron ore) for steel manufacturing in the country will increase. Everybody will have to shut down if they (miners) start exporting iron ore. As it is, there is a severe shortage in Karnataka, and if they start exporting then there will be even more serious problem," he said. Kumar said there was an extreme shortage of iron ore in Karnataka following SC's directive in 2013 to regulate its mining to 30 million tonne per annum (mtpa) to curb illegal mining. ...

Government releases Jharkhand iron ore mining plan, proposes no-go zones 10.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Environment ministry has come out with a plan on 'sustainable iron ore mining ' in Jharkhand's Saranda and Chaibasa, West Singhbhum district, and has proposed go and no-go zones, biodiversity hotspots and conservation areas to protect the region's rich Sal forest and over 200 elephants. It has also accepted an annual cap of 64 million tonnes per annum in Saranda-Chaibasa, based on the expert report of Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education. Only those mining leases falling in the eastern boundary of Saranda have been considered for inclusion in two mining zones and mining leases falling in ten villages across Chaibasa will be considered. The remaining leases, the ministry's plan said, will be closed for mining and kept in abeyance for now. Centre will review their status when mineral deposits in the permitted zones are almost exhausted and appropriate technology is available for their extraction to prevent damage to forest and wildlife. DNA was the first to report on the draft of the ...
