NOTICE INVITING EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
NOTICE NO. ICVL/EOI/GOCK/111
Invitation to submit Expression of Interest for taking up comprehensive exploration activities of Mineral Assets/ Steel Plant in the Province of Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.
1.0 International Coal Ventures Pvt. Ltd. (ICVL) has been set up by the Government of India for the purpose of acquisition of coal companies, mines, assets, blocks in overseas territories. The promoter companies of ICVL are Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL), Coal India Ltd. (CIL), Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd. (RINL), NMDC Ltd. and NTPC Ltd. The coal produced from these assets is intended for imports into India and for meeting the requirements of coal by the member companies of ICVL.
2.0 ICVL intends to conduct a feasibility study for setting up an integrated steel plant of a suitable capacity and development of the mineral deposits namely coking coal, thermal coal, iron ore, limestone and dolomite (the Project) at identified prospective locations in the Province of Central Kalimantan in Indonesia.
3.0 The Feasibility Study will be conducted initially in two stages: (i) a pre-feasibility study in Stage 1; and (ii) thereafter a Detailed feasibility study for the Project in Stage 2. For this purpose, ICVL is seeking to engage the services of a competent and experienced agency of international repute, to carry out the Scope of Work as given below:
4.0 Scope of Work:
The activities would broadly include the following in Stage-1:

Mine modeling and reserve estimation including quality parameters.
Gas drainage programme if found during exploration.
Opening up / trenching / minor excavation of the deposit in in-crop area for verification.
For the Steel plant:
After a review of the exploration report, pre-feasibility report and mine plans, a decision would be taken to progress further into Stage-2 of the Project.
5.0 Details required:
Work experience of similar nature preferably in Indonesia within the last five years
