SMG has also been operational in the mining of blue metals. SMG operates a Crushing unit in South Goa and has plants manufacturing value added products such as Ready Mix Concrete, Pavers and Blocks, with plans to expand operations to include the area of North Goa.

The group has also recently ventured into the quarrying and crushing of blue metals with the acquisition of the state of the art Vertical Shaft Impactor, producing Manufactured Sand or M. Sand in the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. In recent view of the ban on river sand mining, the group is leveraging its strengths and foresight in producing Coarse and Fine aggregates including M. Sand, to cater to a booming infrastructure business in South Bangalore and Hosur.

The plant capacity is 200 tons per hour. SMG plans to expand into the production of allied products such as RMC, Pavers and Blocks in the near future for the South India market. Further, Greenfield projects for quarrying and crushing units are in the pipeline for Karnataka and Maharashtra.

SMG envisages for its growth and expansion plan, further mine acquisitions. It also seeks to tap into both greenfield and brownfield opportunities, while capitalizing on the wealth of experience and expertise within the group, to emerge as one of India’s leading mining groups.
