CHINIOT – RAJOA IRON ORE PROJECT

Project Introduction

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.

Project Progress

The integrated project components include Iron Ore Deposit Estimation along with business case for its processing and steel making. Top international consulting firms have been engaged through international competitive bidding to complete the tasks on international best practices to facilitate investors’ due diligence. Project has two major components: Exploration Work (to provide quality raw material) and business case feasibility to establish steel mills complex. The project has been included into CPEC portfolio as new additional provincial project in the 6th JCC meeting. Following is the progress review snapshot
