The Integrated Belpahar- Lakhanpur-Lilari Project is coal mine proposed by Mahanadi Coalfields Limited, a subsidiary of Coal India, with a capacity of 40 million tonnes per annum, in the Ib Valley coalfield in Odisha state, India.[1] [2] The capacity would increase current operations by 10 million tonnes.

In response to a right of information request in 2021, the mine is not listed by the Government of India as an active new mine project. It is presumed shelved or significantly scaled back.[3]
