Status of Mineral Concessions

OMC currently has 35 Mining Leases (Chromite - 11, Iron - 11, Iron & Manganese - 5, Manganese - 3, Limestone - 1 and Gemstone - 4).

Besides these, 4 Mining Leases (Iron-1, Manganese-1, Bauxite-1 and Tin-1) and 6 Prospecting Licences (Chinaclay-1, Graphite-1, Chromite-2 and Tin-2) have been granted in favour of OMC though the leases are yet to be executed.

In addition to this, OMC has applied for a number of Mining Leases which are pending at Govt. level for consideration.

The details of all Mining Leases along with comparative analysis of ore reserves of OMC Mining Leases vis-à-vis that of the total MLs granted to all parties in Odisha are given below. The data clearly reveals that though OMC holds large areas under its Mining Leases, the ore reserve is disproportionately low which means most of the Mining Lease areas of OMC fall in non-mineralised zone.
