Tata Steel Mining Limited and Jindal Stainless Limited have signed a MoU to jointly unearth the chrome ore locked up in the boundary between their mines located in Sukinda of Jajpur district in Odisha. This would help conservation of chromite ore which otherwise would have been left unmined forever. This unique partnership sets an example for Sustainable Chrome Ore Mining in an innovative manner. Both the companies would now initiate steps to get necessary statutory approvals from concerned authorities before jointly starting mining operations.
Tata Steel Mining Managing Director Mr MC Thomas said, "I am very happy to commence this project today with JSL who has been a valued customer and partner. We are committed to sustainable mining and such a joint initiative will set examples for organizations especially in the mining industry to collaborate in the larger interest of mineral conservation and sustainability. These will redefine the way mining is done through technology, mineral conservation and safety".
Jindal Stainless Limited Managing Director Mr Abhyuday Jindal said "This is a very unique collaboration where JSL & TSML will derive maximum value from a joint mining effort. This effort will enhance the availability of ore in the region without any adverse environmental impact, as it's an already explored area. The move will also benefit local economy. As responsible institutions, we are committed to sustainable mining activity in the region."
