NASARAWA IRON ORE PROJECT

  • Open cast mining has been proposed considering lignite depth, seam thickness, overburden and stripping ratio.
  •  62.43 Mt extractable reserve (subject to increase after due relocation of surface disturbance) with stripping ratio of 1: 3.1. Additional target resources from other coal licenses form the area.  
  •  Excavation and transport equipment’s include surface miners with dumpers and hydraulic shovel with dumpers.12m3 and 6.5m3 capacities hydraulic shovels have been recommended for overburden and lignite respectively with 100 t dumpers for extraction and excavation.
  • 4.00 Mt annual lignite production target with over 20 years mine life for the present reserves.
