Sesa expects to resume Goa iron ore production in Sept: Official

Tags: Industry
Sesa Sterlite Ltd, India's largest private iron ore miner, expects to resume production in the country's Goa state in September, a senior official of the company said on Thursday.

The miner expects its total iron ore output at 9.29 million tonnes in the current fiscal year to March 2015, Aniruddha Joshi, a vice president at Sesa Sterlite that operates in Goa and neighbouring Karnataka, told Reuters in an interview.

The Supreme Court in April lifted a ban on mining in Goa, in place for nearly two years to curb illegal mining, but ordered firms to renew mining leases and environmental clearances before restarting work.
