Ferrogeneous laterite of recent origin covers almost the entire area below which four different primarily hematite bodies have been found to exist. These deposits are locally known as Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Siliceous ore and cross section reserves are attached of each ore body. The later two have been partially found to be magnetic and studies/tests are going on. Top Bombay, middle Calcutta, Delhi and bottom mostly Siliceous ore bodies are separated by magniferous clay. These four ore bodies are different in both physical and chemical characteristics and are unique to be all located in one area. This facilitates combination of various blends of ore to meet changing stringent demands of the Buyer.

All the ore bodies have Low Phosphorous content at 0.04% and Low sulphur content at 0.015%.


The iron ore deposit is formed by the residual concentration of banded hematite quartzite of pre-cambrian formation. The predominant ore is Hematite. The predominant gangue being Silica, Alumna & Manganese.
