Indian National Aluminum signs long-term mining leases to ensure stable supply of bauxite

Recently, NALCO announced that it has successfully signed a long-term mining lease with the government of the state of Orissa, officially leasing 697.979 hectares of bauxite mine located in Pottangi Tehsil, Koraput District. This important measure not only ensures the safety of raw material supply for NALCO’s existing refineries, but also provides solid support for its future expansion strategy.

According to the lease terms, this bauxite mine has enormous development potential. Its annual production capacity is as high as 3.5 million tons, with estimated reserves reaching an astonishing 111 million tons, and the predicted lifespan of the mine is 32 years. This means that in the coming decades, NALCO will be able to continuously and stably acquire bauxite resources to meet its production needs.

After obtaining the necessary legal permits, the mine is expected to be put into operation soon. The mined bauxite will be transported by land to NALCO’s refinery in Damanjodi for further processing into high-quality aluminum products. The optimization of this process will further improve production efficiency, reduce costs, and gain more advantages for NALCO in the aluminum industry competition.

The long-term mining lease signed with the government of Orissa has far-reaching implications for NALCO. Firstly, it ensures the stability of the company’s raw material supply, enabling NALCO to focus more on core businesses such as product research and development and market expansion. Secondly, the signing of the lease also provides broad space for the future development of NALCO. With the continuous growth of global aluminum demand, having a stable and high-quality supply of bauxite will become one of the key factors for aluminum industry enterprises to compete. Through this lease agreement, NALCO will be able to better meet market demand, expand market share, and achieve sustainable development.

In addition, this measure will also have a positive impact on the local economy. The mining and transportation processes will create a large number of employment opportunities and promote the economic prosperity and development of local communities. Meanwhile, with the continuous expansion of NALCO’s business, it will also drive the development of related industrial chains and form a more complete aluminum industry chain ecosystem.
