Outline of Scheme of Mining ( A & B Category Mines)

TO BE SUBMITTED UNDER RULE 12 OF MCDR,1988

(FOR A & B CATEGORY MINES)

The scheme shall be depicted as far as possible on mine plans and sections duly supplemented by tabular statements / charts / diagrams or sketches in support, keeping the descriptive matter to the minimum essential. The plans and sections prescribed under Mineral Conservation and Development Rules, 1988 and the relevant ones under Metalliferrous Mines Regulation, 1961 shall be made full use of . In respct of any item(s) where there is no change, reference to the approved mining plan will be adequate.

PART-I

1.0 REVIEW OF MINING PLAN
1.1 Name of Mine
1.2 Particulars of approval of mining plan ( under MCR or MCDR, indicate approval letter no. and date)
1.3 Date of commencement of mining operations.
1.4 (a) Deficiencies , if any, that existed in the approved mining plan to be taken note of and rectified by incorporating suitable proposals for implementation in the scheme of mining.
(b) Review of compliance position of salient features of the mining plan on chapterwise basis bringing out marked deviations, if any, and justifications / reasons thereof. Items to be covered may include exploration, mine development, exploitation, afforestation programme, reclamation & rehabilitation, control of dust, noise & ground vibrations and any other sigmnificant feature.
(c) Review of the compliance position of conditions and stipulations imposed, if any, while approving the mining plan. In case of non- compliance / partial compliance, detailed justifications / reasons thereof may be furnished along with proposal for compliance in the ensuing period.
(d) Review of compliance of violations pointed out after inspections made under MCDR,1988 during last 5 years. The position emerging out of the yearly review of the mining plan while checking up implementation of the mining plans in the field shall also be taken note of at this stage.
(e) Any other points requiring attention in the interest of proper mine design, development & conservation and environment & ecology of the area.

PART-II

2.0 PROPOSAL UNDER SCHEME OF MINING FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS
2.1 Name and address of the applicant.
2.2 Name and address, registration number of the recognised qualified persons together with validity date / person employed under rule 42(1)(b) who has prepared the mining scheme.
2.3 Mineral(s) to be mined
2.4 Area and date of expiry of lease.

3.2 Depletion of reserves.
3.3 Additional reserves establised categorywise ( with basis and parameters considered).
3.4 Categorywise updated reserve with grade ( indicate end use grade with analysis) as well as marginal grades.

Please furnish the following :

i) An updated surface geological plan showing quarry limits and exploration carried out so far including exploration carried out during the last five years as well as exploration proposed to be carried out in next five years ( different colours / standard codes to be used ). In case of underground mines, an updated plan showing the underground workings and proposals for exploration from underground working.
ii) Updated transverse sections at suitable intervals and longitudinal section showing geology of the deposits and extent of mining operations.
iii) An updated assay plan ( grade distribution plan ) for underground / opencast mine.
4.0 CONCEPTUAL MINING PLAN
Salient features of an updated / modified conceptual plan of the mine covering the period of anticipated life of the mine, depicted on mine geological plans and sections with necessary statement annexed supported by essential text, covering the basic & long term design features of mine covering exploration, mine development, optimum exploitation & utilisation of the mineral, waste & sub-grade mineral management, and environmental aspects. The ensuing five year detailed programme should but be a part of the conceptual overall mining plan.
