Overview :

Dudhichua Opencast Coal Mine is one of the largest coal mine of NCL with a sanctioned capacity of 20 Million Tonnes. The Dudhichua Coal mine was started in 1982 and the coal production began from 1987.

Being a Basket linkage mine Dudhichua Mine has been entrusted with a greater responsibility in NCL for meeting any shortfall of Coal Production of other mines of NCL linked to the pit head power stations of M/s NTPC &M/s UPRVUNL in Singrauli Coalfields as well as distant power stations of Western & Northern India.

The terrain of the OCP mine field represent the hilly plateau with steep escarpment facing south with RLs of 375 m to 400m with occasional hills raising up to 504m. The average elevation at the foot of the plateau is 325m above MSL. The Project is covered under Topo 63-L /12 and bounded by latitudes 240 07’ 38” to 240 10’ 25” N and longitudes 820 39’ 46” to 820 42’ 41” E

  • Dudhichua Project for 5 MTY capacity was sanctioned by Govt of India in Feb’84 for an investment of Rs 289.68 Crores.
  • With the increased demand of coal from Singrauli Coalfields, Dudhichua OCP was sanctioned by the Govt. on 25.8.1992 for 10 MTY with a capital investment of Rs.868.93crores.
  • NCL Board has approved the expansion project report of 15 MTPA in 131st meeting held on 28.07.2008 at an additional initial capital outlay of Rs. 326.57 crores.
  • The project is linked to western India power station through Basket linkage. As NTPC has interlinked Dudhichua Railway siding with the MGR of NTPC, this project will serve a Basket Linkage mine for pit head power station of NTPC to meet any shortfall from any respective linked mines.See More
(a) LOCATION & COMMUNICATION Dudhichua opencast Project is located on the east of Jayant opencast Mine (10 Mtpa) and on the West of Khadia opencast Mine (10Mtpa) in Singrauli Coalfield.
