Mill for Mianwali
selected a site (Kalabagh) with about 80% raw material available
within 11 miles . The steel mill based on the Kalabagh iron ore that was to be
set up at Kalabagh in 1956 but was taken to Karachi where it
is now making steel not from Pakistani ore but from imported ore(
ore contains 66% waste and 33% iron) . In protest the illustrious
Chairman of PIDC, Mr. Ghulam Farooq, resigned.
1956, M/S Krupp of Germany offered to set up a steel mill based on Kalabagh iron
ore, coal and most other minerals available within about 11 miles. In June 1966,
another German company M/S Salzgitter produced in Germany 5,000 tonnes of
quality steel from 15,000 tonnes of Kalabagh iron ore in the presence of
some international experts, and sold it to Volkswagon. Some European banks
offered loans for this project, which confirms technical and financial viability
of the project. Engr. M.Akram Niazi has a lot more to say.
