Brief description of Khadia Project & Geology of Khadia Project:

The Rocks of Barakar formation belonging to Damuda Sub group are exposed in this project alongwith recent soil/alluvium cover at places. Predominated rock types of Barakar formation is sand stone followed by shales and occasional clay horizons. The sand stones where exposed on the top of the plateau are massive and weathered and escarpment, face is characterised by boulders of sand stone rolled from top of the plateau. The sand stone consists of quarts and feldspar.

The Khadia block stands out as a plateau above the plains on its south. The plateau is pronounced by steep escarpment facing south, rising from an elevation of 290m at the base to 425m at the top of the plateau.. The area on the top of the plateau is gently undulating, except one hill in the north-east corner having an altitude of 489m. The general elevation of the plateau varies from 420 to 400m    See More

Structure: The strike is NW – SE in the west which swing to ENE – WSW in the eastern part of the area. The strike is E –W in the central part of the area. The dip generally varies from 20 to 30 ( 1 in 20 to 1 in 25)

DRAINAGE : Drainage is controlled by a few seasonal nallahs, with a southern flow. All these nallas with southerly flow. All these nallas meet the Ballia nalla in the south, which is semi-perinnial.. Garland drains have been provided on periphery of the property.

COAL SEAM & SECTION : There is no exposure of Coal within the Project. The coal seams occurs incrop in the property. Five Coal seams occur namely, Kota, Turra, Purewa bottom, Purewa Top & Khadia in ascending order. The Kota & Khadia seams are not considered for exploitation because of thinness, interbanded and inpersistent. Workable seams are enumerated as under :

Purewa (Top) 8 to 10 M Grade from 'D' to F.
Purewa (Bottom) 9 to 12.5 M Grade from 'C' to 'F'
Turra Seam 19 M to 21.5M Grade from 'C' to 'E'

LOCATION Khadia project is located in Singrauli area of M/s Northern Coalfields Limited between latitude 2407’26” & 240 8’47” and between longitude 82041’40” & 82044’47” has been named after Khadia village located in the south of the block.

Khadia Opencast mine is having a overall stripping ration of 4.29 t / cum and strike length of about 4.5 Km. A combined system of Mining deploying Draglines and Shovel-Dumpers combination has been adopted as suggested in Project report. The mine has been divided into three sector Western, Central and Eastern Section. There are three coal seams as stated above and the top cover above Purewa top coal seam is about 77m, parting between Purewa Top and bottom coal seam is about 35 m and the parting between Purewa bottom and Turra coal seam is about 55m. Thus the total overburden is about 167m. Overburden up to about 132m is taken by Shovel-Dumpers combination and draglines are deployed in the lower 35m for OB removal. The cut length of dragline varies from 70-80m which is worked by two nos. 20/90 Draglines operated with extended bench method. Dragline Baidyanath is working in Central section and exposing Turra Coal in 18th cut. This section was abandoned since last five years. The previous 17th cut was water logged and arrangements were made for dewatering of the water from the cut before the deployment of dragline in new cut i.e. 18th cut. As blasting were done in 18 the cut for deployment of dragline, percolation of rain water which got accumulated in the previous cut no 17, started in the workings of 18th cut slowly for which dewatering arrangements have been made. Coal is extracted after dewatering of coal face by Shovel–dumper combination through main entry. This entry is for extracting the Turra coal seam all along the cut of the Dragline in a safe manner by marinating proper haul road, drain, sump, and corridors etc.
