The sponge iron project of the provincial plans is one of the leading projects that will be operational in the coming months.

In general, carrying out mines and mining industries projects leads to the dynamism in private companies and results in the income growth, employment increase rate, as well as a boost in domestic technical and engineering abilities.

Under the organization's mission, which is to develop the mines and mining industries sector, the ground will be prepared for the realization of private company’s potentials in the supply chain of minerals production, and mining industries including steel, copper, aluminum, gold, titanium, lead, zinc, etc.

IMIDRO hopes that Iran's geological potentials contribute to the increase of mineral reserves as of 50 percent.

The mission was achieved in a large scale Sangan Mine located in Razavi Khorasan and iron ore reserves increased from 600 mt to 1.2 bt.

The discovery of new elements in the area, such as lead and zinc was an achievement while the experts had not previously known.
