The most important and common use of Iron ore is in the Steel making Industries. Steel plants are the backbone of any country's development, especially for a developing country like India as it is important for all infrastructure development in the country; its utilization needs to be optimized. Iron & steel industries are normally heavy industries & they need massive amount of raw material. Iron ore is the principal raw material along with cooking coal and limestone. As per estimation, currently steel production in the country is gradually growing up.
This mine is situated in the district of Mayurbhanj i.e Bamanghati subdivision where tribal population is more than 80%. The climatic condition & soil is not so suitable for agriculture. There is no source of engagement for this tribal people and their living condition is very poor. Sometimes they go outside in search of work to support their family. There is only mining activities in this reason & no industries/plants to provide source of income to the local people. They purely depend on the mining activities only to maintain their lively hood.
This has necessitated the production of raw materials to cater the demand and also these value added product will fetch more revenue to the state as well as to the country as a whole.

India has large and rich potential of Iron ore both in terms of quality and quantity. Hematite and Magnetite are the most important forms of Iron ores in India. Indian Steel sector was liberalized in 1990s and thereafter, several pig Iron plants, sponge Iron plants and integrated steel plants have been setup in private sector.
The existing mining project i.e. Badampahar Iron Ore Mines have given social benefits to surrounding population in the form of educational facilities, roads, communication facilities, transportation, marketing and health facilities directly or indirectly. The projects had encouraged the setting up of various utility services and trade benefiting around 3,000 people around the mining area.
