Business Operations

GMDC is involved in the mining and mineral processing business. Its product lineup includes lignite and fluorspars. It has five operational lignite mines located in Kutch, South Gujarat and Bhavnagar regions. GMDC is a leader in exploring and supplying lignite across Gujarat. It extracts lignite from rich deposits throughout the state and supplies it to various thriving industries like textiles, chemicals, ceramics, bricks and captive power.

The company produces two varieties of fluorspar, acid and metallurgical. Fluorspar finds application in industries such as steel and aluminium. GMDC owns a fluorspar mine at Ambadungar in Udepur district. Located in an area lacking manufacturing and industrial facilities, the Ambadungar Fluorspar Mine and Kadipani Beneficiation Plant significantly contribute to employment creation and economic empowerment in the region.

The company also operates in the business segments of power projects and mining projects. It is engaged in exploring bauxite, fluorspar, manganese, silica sand, limestone, bentonite and ball clay. These serve diverse purposes across industries, from producing hydrofluoric acid to manufacturing glass and ceramics and drilling for oil.

GMDC ensures a smooth fulfilment of Gujarat's demand for both plant-grade and non-plant-grade bauxite. These deposits are strategically grouped with several smaller deposits situated close to each other. Currently, it manages nine bauxite mines, eight of which are in the Kutch district (Gadhsisa Group of Bauxite Mines), and one is situated in the region of Devbhumi Dwarka.

GMDC’s manganese mines are located at Panchmahal, Vadodara, Dahod, Bamankuva, Bapotiya, Pani and Salapada. Its silica sand mines are located at Rajpardi in Bharuch.
