Tata Steel Mining Limited (TSML) and Jindal Stainless Limited (JSL) has signed an MoU on July 16, 2021 to jointly unearth the Chrome Ore locked up in the boundary between their mines located in Sukinda of Jajpur district, Odisha.

We are committed to sustainable mining and such a joint initiative will set examples for organizations especially in the mining industry to collaborate in the larger interest of mineral conservation and sustainability.  These will redefine the way mining is done through technology, mineral conservation and safety.”

Abhyuday Jindal, Managing Director, Jindal Stainless Limited, said, “This is a very unique collaboration where JSL & TSML will derive maximum value from a joint mining effort. This effort will enhance the availability of ore in the region without any adverse environmental impact, as it's an already explored area. The move will also benefit local economy. As responsible institutions, we are committed to sustainable mining activity in the region.”

This unique partnership sets an example for Sustainable Chrome Ore Mining in an innovative manner. This is a win-win-win partnership for the State of Odisha, TSML and JSL. Both the companies would now initiate steps to get necessary statutory approvals from concerned authorities before jointly starting mining operations.
