Jindal Steel’s $2 billion South African iron-ore mine faces environmental hurdle


Jindal Steel & Power Ltd. has had an environmental application to develop an iron-ore mine in South Africa at a cost of as much as $2 billion rejected.

The application was refused because of “extensive gaps in the environmental impact assessment) in the context of constitutional rights,” All Rise, an environmental legal organization, said in a statement on Monday.
