JSW has bagged 4 Iron Ore mines -Nuagaon, Narayanposhi, Jajang and Gonua during the auction conducted by the Odisha government in February. Among the four mines, Nuagaon is the biggest mine with estimated Iron Ore reserve of 790 million tonnes.
These Iron Ore blocks will provide adequate iron ore supply to 12 MTPA project planned at Paradip in Jagatsinghpur district, the same site South Korean Steel major POSCO had abandoned few years back.
