MoU inked for bauxite survey in Chhattisgarh

Friday, 13 May 2022 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

The Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology (CCOST), Raipur, has inked a MoU with the Jawaharlal Nehru Aluminum Research, Development and Design Center (JNARDDC), to evaluate bauxite reserves in the state.

As part of this project, both the institutes will prepare a district-wise digital database of laterite and bauxite deposits using     geo-referenced maps and conduct geotechnical  assessment of bauxite and laterite deposits located in Chhattisgarh with space technology.

The agreement was signed on Wednesday by CCOST and the Regional Science Center Director General Dr. S. Karmakar and JNARDDC Director Dr. Anupam Agnihotri.

The project will be extremely beneficial for    aluminum industry facing shortage of good grade raw ore of bauxite and also for the mining companies and industries using aluminum in various forms and processes.

In addition to the entrepreneurs dealing in bauxite and laterite ores, the existing mine owners and bauxite industries in Chhattisgarh and central India will also benefit.

The database obtained from the state's new remote sensing technology and GIS can be used in any existing mining companies and     aluminum industries.

CCOST scientist M.K. Beg, scientist Dr. Wasim Raza and project scientist Yudhveer Singh as well as principal scientist    (JNARDDC), Nagpur, Dr. Praveen Bhukte were      present on the occasion.
