MECL has completed over 1630 projects/reports and established 200317 Million Tonnes of ores/ mineral reserves of minerals like Coal, Lignite, Bauxite, Copper, Gold, Lead-Zinc, Iron Ore, Limestone, Manganese, Magnesite, Chromite, Fluorspar and several other Industrial Minerals since inception ( As on 30th September, 2023). It has recently diversified into mining and beneficiation of minerals and sampling & analysis of coal stocks.
Mineral Exploration and Consultancy
Limited (MECL) (Formerly Mineral Exploration Corporation Ltd.) is functioning under Ministry of Mines, Govt. of India with 100% Government of India holding, for systematic exploration of minerals “To Bridge The Gap Between Initial Discovery of Mineral Prospect and its Eventual Exploitation”. It is the only organization both in Government and in private sector, possessing entire spectrum of mineral exploration facilities under one roof . Since its inception in 1972, MECL has grown from strength to strength by adopting modern techniques of exploration and it has now emerged as the premier exploration agency in the country. The Company has its corporate office at Nagpur, Maharashtra, with a number of Zonal / Project offices located throughout the length and breadth of the country. The authorized capital is Rs. 125 crores.
Dedicated service of MECL in mineral exploration over three decades has resulted in updating mineral inventory of various minerals manifold and setting up of a number of mineral based industries and Companies in India. Since inception till date, it has completed over 1630 projects of detailed mineral exploration, mine development and 2,00,317 million tonnes of mineral reserves have been established. The exploration inputs are 13.15 million metres of drilling, 5.47 million metres of geophysical logging, 10,343 sq.km. of detailed geological mapping and topographical survey and 0.29 million metres of exploratory & developmental mining. Beside this more than 186 projects on remote sensing and environmental studies have also been completed.
The main strength of the company is its team of well-qualified and experienced exploration geologists, geophysicists, analytical chemists, drilling & mining engineers and surveyors supported by highly skilled, trained technical and scientific staff and state-of-art computer facilities.
MECL has made noteworthy contributions in development of the nation by exploration of coal, lignite, base metals, gold, bauxite, limestone etc. and has achieved several distinctions such as ;
Brought India on the world bauxite map by augmenting large metallurgical grade bauxite reserves in East Coast Provinces of India, which was appreciated by World class Players in aluminum industry. This has resulted in creation of National Aluminum Company Ltd. (NALCO), the largest aluminum Company and several investments are in pipeline for greenfield alumina/aluminum plants.
The largest open cast mine for copper at Malanjkhand and rich copper potential of Banwas had turned out to be the lifeline for Hindustan Copper Ltd. (HCL).
The underground gold mining at Chigargunta by Bharat Gold Mines Ltd. (BGML) and open cast mine at Uti by Hutti Gold Mines Ltd. (HGML).
The coal production has witnessed a quantum leap from a level of 70 million tonnes to over 400 million tonnes and inflow of matching investments in new coal mining projects in the private sector too.
Several lignite based power projects have been / are being established with huge investments in coal deficient states.
It has diversified its activities into CBM exploration & commercial mining.
It has emerged as one of the leading agencies in slim hole drilling for CBM and is currently planning to provide services for production well drilling for CBM.
A longest incline of 600 metres was constructed at Balaria lead-zinc deposit in Rajasthan. India’s longest raise of 143 metres was also constructed at Zawar.
MECL has carried out drilling for geo-technical studies at Pir Panjal range of Jammu & Kashmir for the prestigious Kashmir Rail Project, Dulhasti Hydroelectric project, Chemera Hydroelectric project and in Subensiri Basin .
It has also contributed significantly in the preparation of ground water potential maps under “Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission”.
Successfully completed a deepest borehole of 1400 Metre depth for CBM investigation in Gondwana Formation (Jharia coalfield) on behalf of CMPDIL.
With these achievements, a number of foreign companies have joined / are joining hands with MECL to expand their activities in India under the on- going liberalization process in Mineral Industry.
MECL, with the developed infrastructure and expertise, is committed to execute cost and time effective comprehensive programme(s) from reconnaissance survey to pre-feasibility studies on turn key basis. It will “leave no stone unturned” to achieve the goals, singly or in association with suitable strategic partners in the present economic reforms.
