Background Information

Rajpura Dariba Mine is an underground mine, commissioned in 1983. It is located about 75 kilometres north-east of Udaipur, in the state of Rajasthan in India and is well connected with roads.

Process Description

Mining:

Mining is carried out using the Blast Hole Stoping method with mined out stopes backfilled with cemented tailings.

Processing:

The ore is crushed underground before being hoisted to the surface. It is then crushed again and milled before undergoing a flotation process, to produce the concentrate.

Zinc and Lead concentrates produced are transferred to our smelters.
