    The Minister of Mines, India, Pralhad Joshi on 25th February’20 laid the foundation stone of Crusher and Conveyor System at NALCO’s Mining & Refinery (M&R) Complex in Damanjodi, Odisha.

    Referring to the fact that Odisha has about 51% of the country’s bauxite, Mr Joshi said: “Our Govt. has taken a number of steps to unlock the mining potential of mineral-rich States for the benefit of the country as well as the population residing in these areas.”
