Our Raw Materials operations in India are mainly spread in three broad areas - iron-ore, chromite and coal. The chromite and manganese mines and their operations have been amalgamated under the 'Ferro Alloys & Minerals Division' that acts as a separate strategic business unit. Iron-ore and coal being the two key raw materials for steel making, efficient and scientific mining operations give us a competitive edge in steel production.
With a century of experience in sourcing raw material through scientific research & development and sustainable mining, our long-term strategy has been designed to develop the existing raw material resources and achieve its security across global operations.Iron Ore and Coal
Iron Ore mining is an integral part of steel making at Tata Steel. The steel company's iron ore units produce various grades of high quality iron ore including rich blue dust ore. Operations at the mines, including services are managed by Integrated Management Systems.
To meet our business excellence objectives, our collieries are constantly endeavouring to improve mine productivity, reduce ash content, improve washery yield and make the operation safe and environment friendly.
Responsible mining as a policy is the single most important reason for the growth and prosperity of our company for over a century.
The Global Minerals Group scans the world mineral map and identifies assets in steel-making raw material - iron ore, coal, limestone, etc.
We follow a systemic review of geology and resource base and business inputs to look for opportunities that are beneficial to and in line with Tata Steel’s strategy and business focus.
