Honorable CM has entrusted Punjab Mineral Company (PMC) to drive the vision for the exploration, development and exploitation of economic mineralization within the Punjab. To realize the vision of Chief Minister Punjab, PMC has undertaken exploration and resource estimation of mineral resources and has been working to shape up Pakistan’s first integrated iron ore mining, processing and steel mills complex at Chiniot through the judicious application of modern technology and global best practices.
Chief Minister Punjab
Pakistan is blessed with a highly prospective geology, which has demonstrated the potential for hosting rich mineral deposits, including but not limited to copper, gold, iron, coal etc. The development and exploitation of this mineral wealth is vital for our national and provincial growth and, with concentrated efforts, can anchor the economic development that takes place in the Province.
The Government of the Punjab aims to play a proactive role in the effective and safe exploitation of minerals, and sustainable development of the mineral sector in Punjab, in order to achieve self-sufficient growth and maximized benefit. The Government of the Punjab desires that the private sector and foreign investors come forward and contribute in their respective scope to stimulate opportunities and make the best use of available resources. The Government of the Punjab has already made efforts to channelize its mineral resource, with the aim of transforming the mineral sector into a contemporary and competitive sector of international standards.
I feel great pride in sharing the recent accomplishments of the Government of the Punjab, such as the flagship project of Chiniot / Rajoa Iron Ore, which has been under development since 2014 and is now an integral part of the Province’s steel production strategy. It is expected to be a game-changer for the sector, as well as the Punjab and Pakistan in general vis-à-vis employment, revenues, secondary and tertiary sector stimulation and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth.
I strongly believe in our ability and determination to accomplish our goals and move towards a brighter future for our people. I wish great success to all stakeholders who are part of this process.
