GRANITE MINE PROJECT


PROJECT NAME:

Feasibility Study for Granite Slab Preparation and Enhancement of Stone Production by Expansion of Maddhapara Mine

CLIENT’S NAME:

Maddhapara Granite Mining Company Limited (MGMCL)

SITE LOCATION:

Maddhapara, Parbatipur, Dinajpur

 


Feasibility Study Overview

The Maddhapara Granite Mine is currently the only actively producing crushed stone aggregates mine in Bangladesh. The mine is located in Parbatipur Area of Dinajpur District, Rangpur Division. The mine is 240 km northwest of Dhaka and 28 km southeast of Saidpur, the nearest major centre and regional airport. Through September 2018, the mine has produced more than 4.5 million tonnes (Mt) of granite since commencement of operations in 2007. In fiscal year 2017 the mine produced 760,000 tonnes and will likely exceed 1 Mt of stone production this fiscal year. The design capacity of the current mine is 1.65 million tonnes per year (Mtpy). The main consumers of the crushed stone are Bangladesh Railway, Roads and Highways Department, Water Development Board, Public Works Department LGED etc. as the material is used to construct roads, erosion control on waterways and to manufacture asphalt and concrete for roads, bridges, and buildings. The Feasibility Study is to be carried out on 2.25 km2 (1,500 m x 1,500 m) in the Southeastern part of the mine area. The main objective of the Feasibility Study is to study an expansion of the mining area towards the southeast in relation to the construction of a new mine in order to: (1) produce granite in the form of slabs, and (2) to expand the overall output of crushed granite (aggregate) from the mine complex by an additional 3.30 Mtpa.
