Largest Mechanised Mine in India
Which among the following is the largest mechanized mine in India?
- Ratnagiri mine
- Jaipur mine
- Sundergarh mine
- Bailadila mine
Answer: Bailadila mine
The range is located in the northeastern area of the Deccan Plateau. It extends in a roughly SW - NE direction for a length of about 70 km south of the Indravati River. Rising to a height of 1,276 m, one of the hills of the Bailadila Range is the highest point in the state of Chhattisgarh.
The hills are located at a distance of about 40 km south west of Dantewada, the district headquarters in the state. Formerly the Biladila slopes were thickly wooded, but the range has been a mining area producing very high grade iron ore and the mineral extraction has left many areas of the mountains scarred.
