Project type- 1. Mining Extraction of Natural Resources and Power generation 5. Manufacturing and Fabrication

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

Project Details - Public Hearing for 7.5 hectare proposed bauxite mine for production of 0.1 MTPA. The site is located on Reserved Forest land. The area is a Rocky Plateau, a number of seasonal streams originate from the hill slopes and finally meet the River Tilari. The North flowing rivers meet with River Tamraparni. The lower reaches of the plateau give rise to numerous ephemeral streams

Project type- 1. Mining, extraction of natural resources and power generation ( for a specified production capacity)

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

Project Details - Public hearing for a proposed limestone mine of 1228.6 Ha It is proposed to mine 4.3 MTPA of limestone from the lease. This mine will supply the Greenfield cement plant. The mine will be operated by opencast method and involves drilling, blasting, loading and transportation. The project involves Reserve Forest area near Metgud, Petlur, Budni Khura and Mallapur. Impact on Air environment: The air borne particulate matter is the main pollutant contributed by opencast mining. Mining activity will result in increase in dust SPM concentrations in mining lease area and surrounding area. The sources of fugitive dust emmission would due drilling and blasting sites; vehicular movement; smoke from HEMM equipment and tippers will generate NOx and SO2 emmissions. Impact due to Noise Environment The major noise source from the mines is drilling, blasting, movement of machinary and transport. Impact on water environment:The water requirement of the proposed mine is 100 cubic meters per day. Analysis of Alternatives (Technology and Site) No alternate sites have been considered and no mention has been made regarding the alternative technology. Alternative technology in mining would include surface mining where drilling and blasting is not involved.

Project Details - "Public hearing for the proposed New Umrangshu Limestone Mine project (Lease Area-417.5 Ha) with Production Capacity of 7.7 MTPA of M/s. Calcom Cement India Ltd., Assam. Impact on water environment: The water requirment is 100 KLD and the source is stated to be the Amrang Nalla/ harvested rain water in lower benches/ ground water depending upon feasibility and availability.There would be an adverse impact on the existing natural resources due to the plant. Impact of noise: The activities undertaken in the said project would include, Drilling, Blasting, Loading, Transportation and Crushing. These would cause noise and disturbance to the surrounding. Impact on air quality: Opencast mining activities causes considerable amount of dust and exhaust fumes from vehicles and machinary in use"
