Iron ore mining major NMDC has signed a research agreement with Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research organization (CSIRO), Australia for research collaboration in the field of complex iron ore processing by energy efficient dry processing techniques.

The agreement was signed by Narendra Kumar Nanda, Director (Technical), on behalf of NMDC Limited and Keith Vining, Group Leader, on behalf of CSIRO in the presence of N Baijendra Kumar, CMD, NMC, according to a statement.

A one day work shop on “Processing of complex goethitic iron ores” was organised jointly by NMDC and CSIRO Australia at NMDC R&D Centre in Hyderabad. The workshop covered various technical aspects ranging from Iron Ore Characterization, Geometallurgy, Beneficiation and Agglomeration processes.

The speakers from CSIRO Australia delivered technical talks on cutting edge technologies in iron ore exploration to processing including inputs on processing of hydrated iron ore like goethite. About sixty delegates from various organizations including NMDC, JSW, SAIL, MECON, BARC and IIT Hyderabad attended the one day work shop organized during the Diamond Jubilee year of NMDC.
