The Orissa High Court set aside the state’s recommendation to the Centre that South Korean steel major Posco be granted prospective licence (PL) to mine iron ore in Sundergarh district.

A division bench, comprising Justice BP Das and Justice BP Ray, directed the government on Wednesday to take a fresh look at the recommendation after considering the applications.

The order came in response to a petition by Karnataka-based Geomin Mineral and Marketing Ltd.
