In India, ACC has announced that is has resumed quarrying operations at its Bargarh cement plant in Odisha, having earlier suspended operations following a Supreme Court judgement. Mining and clinker production stopped at the company’s Chaibasa, Jharkhand and Bargarh plants, but grinding operations continued, meaning there was no real impact on production during the closure period, which began in October 2014.

The lease has been renewed on the quarry under the new Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act. Mining operations had earlier resumed at the company’s Chaibasa quarry.
