National Mineral Development Corporation Ltd. (NMDC), Country’s largest Iron Ore producer, a CPSE under Ministry of Steel became the first company in the country to cross 40 million tonnes (MT) iron ore production in a year. From a production of 4 MTPA in the late 1960s to 40 million tonnes now, the growth trajectory of the largest iron ore producer of the country has been exceptional. Starting from 4 million tonnes in 1969-70, NMDC crossed

10 million tonnes in 1977-78, added another ten million by 2004-05, crossed 30 million tonnes within a decade and has now breached the 40 million mark.

Keeping pace with the constant surge in the domestic iron ore demand,the company has been rolling out ambitious expansion plans and capex outlay in pursuit of enhanced production. In recent times, NMDC has adopted cutting-edge technology and built a transformational digital infrastructure to overcome Covid induced slowdowns and the cyclical volatilities in the sector. Growing from scale to strength, the company has achieved the milestone of 40 million tonnes iron ore production on the back of steady fundamentals and a visionary workforce.

Congratulating the team on the historic achievement, Shri Sumit Deb, Chairman and Managing Director, NMDC said, “NMDC’s ground-breaking achievement of becoming the first iron ore mining company in India to cross 40 MT is an illustrious display of its ability to accept challenges despite all odds. The company’s perseverance and consistency has paid off and I congratulate the team for this historic accomplishment. I am confident that we will continue to cross many more milestones on our way to fulfil Nation’s vision of #AtmanirbharBharat. This achievement also shows that we are on the track to become a 100 MTPA company by 2030.”

It is pertinent to mention that the company has set a target of becoming a 100 MTPA company by 2030. The CPSE also plans to leverage their expertise in moving towards a multi-mineral outlook with coal, diamond, gold and other strategic minerals of national interest in their portfolio.

History made for the community of St Helena Island

History was made last week with the first ”Global Saint Community Map’. Showcasing how the small island community of only 4,000 people isolated in the South Atlantic Ocean, has spread to living in 41 countries across the world.

May 25, 2021PRLog — The Saint Cooks, a couple who celebrate the food, culture and community from St Helena Island, made history last week by launching the first ever successful ‘Global Saint Community Map’.  Showcasing how the small island community of only 4,000 people isolated in the South Atlantic Ocean, have spread to living in 41 countries across 6 continents around the globe.

The Global Saint Community Map, the first of its kind, aims to visualise how Saints (as people from St Helena are affectionately known) renowned for their friendliness, loud humor and large portions of food wherever they go, have spread around the world. Taking their community and culture with them.  It has been hypothesized that the global Saint community might be as many as 5 or 6 times larger than the 4,000 or so people that live on the 47 square mile St Helena Island in the South Atlantic Ocean.

Using their social media channels, The Saint Cooks launched a campaign as part of their annual St Helena’s Day celebrations on the 21st May (the day celebrating the discovery of the island) to find a Saint living on every continent. The response was overwhelming. Saints around the world got in touch, along with their descendants (including one 12 generations removed) to share where they were living and say how proud of their Saint heritage they are.

The Saint Cooks said, “We were so inspired and humbled by the sheer number of people who reached out to be included as part of the Saint Family. People really took ownership of the idea of being part of a global saint family. Their enthusiasm and support for the project has been incredible.”

During their live facebook show, celebrating the discovery of the island, The Saint Cooks was able to map Saints and their descendants living in 35 countries around the world. In places far away from the island like China, Philippines, Costa Rica, Canada, Chile and Oman. As expected with most living in the UK, or in Europe. The furthest any Saint was living from the island was 15,798km away in Japan. With 2 Saints living there.

The Saint Cooks have now created a detailed interactive map showing all the locations to explore. They hope to continue to grow the map, to showcase as many places as they can. Visualising how their small island community has shared its rich culture and community with the world. And how proud people are to be from a place so isolated from the wider world.
