B. Brief Description of Nature of Project.
The project is for the expansion in production of 2, 00,000 TPA of Ball Clay. The expected life of the
mine is around 10 years. The proposed project of Ball Clay shall be developed using the semi
mechanized open cast mining method with no drilling & blasting. Mineral will be excavated manually
with simple hand tools with no drilling and blasting involved.
The height of bench will be kept 3.0 mts maximum in overburden and 2.5 mts in Clay Bed and the
width of the benches will be kept more than 5.0 mts. The working will be done by forming benches
with height of not more than 3.0 mts. at a time in overburden and 2.5 mts in Clay Bed and the width
of the benches will be kept 5.0 mts. Ultimate depth of the working or pit limit will be 22 mtrs. The
waste obtained will be soil, weathered, friable sandstone and it will be utilized for the simultaneous
backfilling so at end of the fourth year, total 8.00 hectares area will be backfilled. Total O.B/waste
generated during the next four years will be 1107271 cum. Water requirement for the proposed
project for domestic use, dust suppression and plantation, will be 4-5 KLD.
C. Need for the Project & Importance to the Country
The mining project falls in the Jaitaran Tehsil and Pali district of Rajasthan, and the area is devoid of
industrial growth. The mineral clay is used in Ceramics, Textile and Paper coasting, Rubber, Paints,
and Cosmetics & Pharmaceutical, Insecticides, refractory bricks & cement.
It is observed that the clays existing in the lease area are of good plastic nature, medium grained and
with good whiteness index, some clay is having iron impurities. The clay is generally classified in two
grades A & C.
3
Project: M.L. No. 07/1973,
Literia Ball Clay Mine, Litaria, Jaitaran, Pali
Project Proponent: Shri Abdus Sami Salfi
1. Grade – A (special):Clay contains alumina varying from 30 to 34% with high plasticity, free of iron impurities and stained
after sorting & dressing operations. The potential market for this quality of ball clay is in ceramic &
potteries industries. It is also used in rubber & paint industries.
2. Grade – C:Quality of clay contains around 20 to 22% alumina with low plasticity & poor whiteness and fire
grains. This quality of clay will be available on top layer. This is used in stoneware industries, brick
manufacturing industries as well as tiles & pipes industries.
The clay produced from this area is sold in the open market to the various consumers in India. Subgrade mineral produced shall be supplied in the cement industry.
D. Demand and supply gap
The area is famous for its large reserves of high grade quality of Ball Clay. The demand for the
minerals has been steadily increasing over the years. It is extensively used in Ceramics, Textile and
Paper coasting, Rubber, Paints, and Cosmetics & Pharmaceutical, Insecticides, refractory bricks &
cement industries. However, the present supply of these minerals is in-sufficient to meet with it
existing and growing demand of the product, the prospectus of industries is very good.
E. Export Possibility
Since the produced mineral will be sufficiently absorbed in the local market it will not be exported.
F. Domestic/Export Markets
The mine is meant for domestic market use only thus, there is no requirement of selling of the
mineral in export markets.
G. Employment Generation (Direct & Indirect) due to the project
The earning sources of the region are limited. Most of the people are dependent on agriculture. The
expansion in the proposed mining project of will bestow various increased social & economic
benefits to the local communities and improvements in physical and social infrastructure of the area,
apart from increased financial benefits incurring to state govt. by way of taxes royalties & cess etc. In
operational phase, the proposed project would require significant workforce of non technical and
technical persons. The proposed mining activity will provide employment to about 12 workers. The
workers will be hired mostly from the nearby villages.

C. Details of alternate sites considered and the basis of selecting the proposed site,
particularly the environmental consideration gone into should be highlighted.
As the project is mineral specific and the lease was sanctioned for excavating the mineral Ball Clay, at
the specific location near Village Literia, thus no alternate site was considered.
D. Size and Magnitude of Operation
The area is 34.23 hectare and it is proposed to produce mineral Ball clay at ultimate capacity
2,00,000 TPA using the open cast Semi Mechanized mining methods.
E. Project description with process details (a schematic diagram/flow chart showing the
project layout, components of the project etc. should be given)
The Project is for mineral Ball Clay and the lease area comprises of 34.23 hectares and as per revenue
records is Private Agricultural Land. Mining Operations will be carried out using the semi
mechanized open cast mining method with no drilling & blasting. Proposed rate of production will be
2, 00,000 TPA for mineral Ball Clay. The working will be done by forming benches with height of not
more than 3.0 mts. at a time in overburden and 2.5 mts in Clay Bed and the width of the benches will
be kept 5.0 mts. Ultimate depth of the working or pit limit will be 22 mtrs. Ultimate pit slope is
proposed to be 45 from vertical. Haul roads will be developed up to the loading points and will not
have gradients more than 1:16. The overburden mainly consists of Soil, Weathered Friable
Sandstone, as overburden, which will be removed with the help of JCB and will be stacked separately.
The O.B/waste generated from the excavations in the next four years will be 1107271 cum over 8.0
hectares.
The overburden/waste material shall be directly transported to waste dump yard by dumpers/
tractor trolley, whereas the clay will be sorted out according to grade at the faces on the basis of
color, feel and texture. The clay lumps shall be hand sorted, dressed by sharp chisels for removal of
red and yellow iron stains by peeling them off with knives. The material shall be graded visually
based on the experience of labour and stacked separately. The waste generated during the mining
operations will be utilized for simultaneously backfilling. At the end of the life of mine 20.43 hectares
will be backfilled and & 4.61 Hectare will be used for the Rain water storage. Water stored in the pit
will be used for the agricultural purpose.

Additional reserves established category wise (with basis and parameters considered):
In the earlier approved mining plan the thickness of good quality Ball clay was taken as 5.0mts and
low grade clay as 2.0 mts and has provided basis of estimation of reserves. Therefore estimation of
the reserves of Ball Clay has been made which is tabulated in the table below. Market of low grade
clay has been generated hence re-estimation of clay done.
Updated reserves with grade (indicate end use grade with analysis, as well as marginal grade:
RESERVE ESTIMATION FOR MINERAL BALL CLAY – The reserves have been divided into three
categories namely Proved, Probable & Possible. On the basis of two working pits present in the lease
area, limit of proved reserves has been considered for reserves estimation and boundaries of
probable & possible reserves category has been assumed on the basis of regional mineral occurrence
in the lease area.
Proved Reserves: Two good quality ball clay beds are present in the lease area. First good quality ball clay bed having
thickness of 2.5mts occurs at a depth of 13.5mts & second good quality clay bed of 2.5mts occurs at a
depth of 18mts hence the good quality of clay beds is occurs at deeper level. Surface area of both clay
beds has been measured and then multiplied by thickness of the Ball clay beds (2.5mt + 2.5mts=
5mts) to get volume of the mineral. This volume has been multiplied by Bulk Density (2.2
Tonnes/cum) to get tonnage of reserves under proved category.

Probable Reserves: The Probable reserves area is considered to be further 40mts from the limit of the proved reserves
area. Two good quality ball clay beds are present in the lease area. First good quality ball clay bed
having thickness of 2.5mts occurs at a depth of 13.5mts & second good quality clay bed of 2.5mts
occurs at a depth of 18mts hence the good quality of clay beds is occurs at deeper level. Surface area
of both clay beds has been measured and then multiplied by thickness of the Ball clay beds (2.5 +
2.5mts= 5mts) to get volume of the mineral. This volume has been multiplied by Bulk Density (2.2
Tonnes/cum) to get tonnage of reserves under probable category.
Possible Reserves:Remaining area has been considered under possible category. Two good quality ball clay beds are
present in the lease area. First good quality ball clay bed having thickness of 2.5mts occurs at a depth
of 13.5mts & second good quality clay bed of 2.5mts occurs at a depth of 18mts hence the good
quality of clay beds is occurs at deeper level. Surface area of both clay beds has been measured and
then multiplied by thickness of the Ball clay beds (2.5 + 2.5mts= 5mts) to get volume of the mineral.
This volume has been multiplied by Bulk Density (2.2 Tonnes/cum) to get tonnage of reserves under
