Jhamarkotra Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Rock Phosphate mines at Jhamarkotra & Kanpur Group of Mines are complex deposits. Mining these rock phosphate deposits is far more difficult than that in most parts of the world. Despite the complexities of the deposit, excellent results have been achieved by continuous innovations. With an annual rock handling of about 20 million tonnes, Jhamarkotra is probably the largest open cast mine in India outside the steel and coal sectors. On technical fronts the problem of ground water had affected the mining operations, until an effective dewatering scheme was evolved and implemented. The geometry of the ore body i.e thin and sharply dipping had resulted in long and narrow pits with great depth extension, which involves very high stripping ratio with high lead and lift for waste and mineral. Despite all these problems Jhamarkotra project could sustain the very difficult periods because of its commitment towards scientific approach for exploitation of the deposit with planned development of the pits.
