  34. 34. BBCON Dr. S. M. Kolay Associate Consultant, Director (Mahavir Resources Solutions Ltd.) Dr. Kolay has more than 40 years of experience. He has extensive experience in corporate strategy, mine planning, high volume growth of production, implementation of mine projects and washery projects. His significant projects of recent time are as follows: • Presented to MOC, the Mining Plan, for Kerendari ‘A’ Coal Project(6 MTPA) and Chattibariatu Coal Project (7 MTPA) of NTPC. Ltd. Feasibility Reports,final version of both Projects have been approved by NTPC . Mining Plans of both projects have been approved by the Government. He was Team leader for Kerendari A, Mine, 395m ultimate depth . Notwithstanding adverse geo-mining conditions, about 26% IRR, could be projected in the F.R. • Prepared Mining Plan for Taraimar Coal Block. Approved by MOC. 3 MT from OC and I MT from Underground,3 coal seams, annual production. • Worked as one of the two Indian experts along with two German experts in EU funded project for Beneficiation Options of LVHRC coal of Jharia Coalfields and submitted Final Report. E.U named Dr SM Kolay as one Expert. After investigations in and determination of washability characteristics of low volatile high rank coal of V/VI/VII seam, appropriate washing circuits for maximising the yield of processed clean coal characterised by an ash content of 18+/-0.5% were designed along with concept of a pilot scale processing plant for the above coal qualities with 0.5 to 1 Mt/y raw coal feeding capacity, generating also a secondary coal product at 34% ash. On materialisation, the strategy can save India import of atleast 6 MT coking coal annually. The report has been approved by the E.U. • Prepared pre-feasibility report, on behalf of PWC for a coal mine(Kerendari B& C) to feed 4000 MW Tilaya UMPP, so as to arrive at the least cost option in the financial model, which is partly linked to the minimal cost of power. The Mine was designed by Dr Kolay for an annual target coal production of 22 MT. Cost per Tonne as per the Plan prepared was minimal, probably lower than that worked by the company who won the bid. Additional coal production sustaining another 1000MW power generation was planned. • Detailed Pre-feasibility Report for Moher Coal Project (15 MTPA) with least cost option, as a retained advisor for Lanco Group who got short-listed as the bidder with minimum quoted tariff of Re 1.19/unit(Sasan UMPP).Contribution of the team was appreciated by the Management of Lanco. 50 cu m Draglines were planned for the first time in the country in the Pre-feasibility report. • Prepared Mineral Experts Report on three coal assets of a coal company as an associate consultant to facilitate listing in London Stock Exchange. One OC in Chattisgarh and Two Underground Mines in Maharashtra. 34 MINING ENGINEERS
