RAPID ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN (REIA & EMP) FOR
JAISINGPUR IRON ORE MINE OF
M/S. ASHA MINING COMPANY, HOSPET
M/s. Asha Mining Company Hospet, Bellary, Karnataka are well experienced in the mining and iron ore business for more than 20 years. The applied area for mining lease is falls in R.M. Bock, Sandur range Forest, Bellary Division, Karnataka State. Proponent is also running a logistic company for transport of minerals.
This is an applied mining lease area for iron ore extraction over an extent of 10.12 Ha. The project is named in the style as \u201cJaisingpur Iron ore mine\u201d. For this purpose a mining plan has been prepared and obtained approval from IBM, Bangalore vide their approval letter No.279/794/20104/BNG dated 18/08/2004. The proposed production of iron ore is 70,000 tpa. There will be an incidential production of 5000 tpa of subgrade ore analyzing 58 to 62% of Fe.
Application for mining lease has been made to the Govt. of Karnataka. Govt. of Karnataka has asked the proponent to submit mining plan , clearance from MOEF and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board for granting the mining lease. Hence a rapid EIA & EMP has been prepared and submitted along with Form I, MOEF has issued Terms of Reference (TOR) and asked the proponent to incorporate TOR and submit application to KSPCB seeking Public Consultation (Refer Annexure-I).
The subject applied lease area falls in Ramgad RF of Sandur taluk, Bellary district of Karnataka state. The total extent of the lease area is 10.12 Ha and entire area forms part of forest land.
Liberalisation of exports and increase in the demand of iron ore in the international & domestic market for low grade iron ore, lessee can cater to the increased market requirements by the proposed iron ore production from this lease.
The lessee has to obtain Environmental Clearance from MOEF, New Delhi as per the Environmental Notification 2006, for new mining projects. In this respect a presentation for Terms of Reference was made at Environmental Appraisal Committee (MOEF) meeting held on 15.03.2007. Application is being submitted to Karnataka Sate Pollution Board (KSPCB) to conduct Public Hearing Process.
The final REIA & EMP with regulatory scoping carried out including the terms of reference is thus being presented under the category of new mining projects.
A Rapid Environmental Impact Assessment (REIA) and Environmental Management Plan (EMP) is prepared based on the baseline information of the project covering a 5 kms radius bufferzone around the mining lease area. Baseline data has been generated covering the pre-monsoon month of April 2007.The impact of the proposed mining project has been discussed and the net
effect is summarized using impact prediction models. Finally, the steps to be initiated to mitigate the adverse effects have been spelt out here with a view to maintain the original environmental quality of the area.
M/s Asha mining Company, Hospet has applied for mining lease for iron ore in RM Block, Sandur Range Forest, Bellary Division, Karnataka State over an extent of 10.12 Ha. Lessee proposes to produce iron ore @70,000 tonnes per annum by using semi-mechanised opencast mining method.
The lease area is located at Latitude N15o10\u201905\u201d and Longitude E 76o26\u201900. The general location plan is enclosed vide Figure No.2.1 showing the disposition of the project site and the surrounding features. A lease sketch is enclosed showing the project site layout vide Figure No.2.2
The lease area forms part of Ramgad RF of Sandur Range Forest . The run of the hill range is NW-SE. The aspect is NE & SW. The highest and lowest elevations of the area are 948m and 860m above msl respectively. The rain water valleys drain the water to the bottom. The rain water from area is coursed to natural drainage nallah which drains the water into village tanks which are situated nearby in villages. The vegetation around the ML area is scant and does not have any timber yielding varieties.
The rock formations in this region belong to the Dharwar super group of the iron ore stage. The Bellary-Hospet region forms a part of the \u2018Sandur Schist Belt\u2019. The lithological units include green stones which are the metamorphosed basic igneous rocks occupying the valley regions, phyllitic-quartzites forming canoe \u2013 shaped amphitheatre of hills trending NNW - SSE.
The host rocks are Banded Hematite Quartzites which gave rise to secondary deposits of iron ore which form the peaks of the hill ranges as they are weather resistant. The lateritisation of the ferruginous quartzites followed by leaching of silica, alumina and alkalis has given rise to the iron ore deposits of the area.
The general strike direction of the formations is NW-SE. The dips vary from 630 to 650 towards NE. The quality of ore is good analyzing 63% to 65% of Fe.
