Birida Graphite Mines

Category (based on the spatial extent of potential impacts and potential impacts on human health and natural and manmade resources.) - B

Project type- 1. Mining, extraction of minerals and power generation

Project sub-type- 1. a) Mining of Minerals

Project Details - Public Hearing for Proposed project is a green field projec t intended for production of graphite ore @ 83,000 TPA at Birida Graphite Mine of M/s Sibananda Pradhan over mine lease area of 45.753 ha along with a pit head graphite beneficiation plant (83,000 TPA throughput) inside th e same mine lease located at Village – Birida, Tehsil- Rayagada Sadar, District-Rayagada, Odisha. The land is mainly agricultural. The proposed mine will generate 95,360 m 3OB during the scheme period. About 300 m 3 of top soil will be generated in the scheme period, which will be stored for onward utilization in plantations. Beneficiation of 83000 TPA of iron ore will produce about 69680 TPA of tailing waste. Source of air pollutants in the mine are drilling, excavation, transportation (movement of truck/tippers & other vehicles and movement of HEMMs) Noise level increases due to mining activities such as excavation, drilling, blasting, handling-transportation of ore & overburden and operation of processing equipment
