Actual mining in SCM was started on a small scale in December 1960 to meet the requirements of refractory grade chrome ore using manual open cast working. The production was stepped up with increasing demand of refractory grade chromite and thereafter, the production from SCM has increased significantly over the years with every step forward in mechanisation.
During the course of mining, a substantial quality of low-grade ore is generated. In order to conserve scarce chrome ore, Tata Steel set up the largest chrome ore beneficiation plant in India with a designed capacity of 1.08 lakh tpa, within its lease area in the year 1990.
