V.M.Salgaocar - Stockyard at Vagus Complex

In case the ore is not directly transported to the port, it is brought to the stockpile by a fleet of tipper trucks.

Various qualities of ore from the Dry Screening and Beneficiation Plant are stockpiled separately in a stockyard that has the capacity for one million tons of ore.

The ore is than systematically reclaimed, blended and loaded into barges by tipper trucks through three ore loading facilities and one conveyor loading facility. An average loading rate of 40,000 tons per day can be achieved.
