AMN

For the first time in Bangladesh, iron ore mine has been discovered at Isabpur village in Dinajpur. The announcement was made on Tuesday by the Geological Survey of Bangladesh following extensive drilling over two months in the area.

 

According to the Geological Survey, a 400-foot thick iron layer was found 1,750 feet beneath the surface stretched over an area of 6-10 square kilometre.

 

The percentage of iron in the mine was 65 which indicates the high quality of the ore. In most other countries like Canada, China, Brazil Sweden and Australia the percentage is below 50.

 

Other minerals such as gold, there were copper, nickel and chromium were also found at various levels of the mining. The discovery of the iron mine has opened up economic prospects for the country.

 

The discovery of high-quality iron ore mine in Dinajpur district of Bangladesh is a significant achievement. Since the iron concentration in the magnetite ore is 65 percent, mining would be economically feasible.

 

The Geological Survey of Bangladesh first took up drilling of the area in 2013 and the second drilling was started in April this year. Once commercial extraction begins, this will create employment opportunities for the people and help Bangladesh economy significantly .”
