at Donimalai, Biladila. 14 iron ore mine and Panna diamond mine.
During the last 8 years desiliting operations of Kirandul nala and Kadampal tailing
dam by mechanized means are undertaken to keep the surface water problem under control
at Bailadila Deposit-14/11c project.
Eletricity is generated and the same is utilized for operation of the Plant while
transporting the crushed ore using a downhill conveyor system passing through a
tunnel at each of the 3 major iron ore production projects at Bailadila Dep-14/11c

As a part of massive afforestation drive, 2351816 saplings have been planted at
all projects of NMDC since inception, covering 60 variety of tree species which
includes local and native species, fast growing species, fruit bearing varieties,
ornamental trees, medicinal plants and certain exotic species. The total area covered
in all the projects is well above 1490Ha. Afforestation would be carried out every
year by planting 1.00 lakh plants and taking care of them for a period of 3 years.
