The Amlohri coal mine is an opencast mine, operated by Northern Coalfields Limited, a subsidiary of Coal India. It produces up to 15 million-tonnes-per-annum in Village Amlohri, Tehsil Waidhan, District Sidhi, Madhya Pradesh state, India.[5]

The Amlohri Opencast Coal Mine is operated by Northern Coalfields Limited, a subsidiary of Coal India Limited. The mine lies near the Jayant coal mine and Nigahi coal mine.

In July 2022, a proposal to increase the mine's production capacity from 14 to 15 MTPA over the existing mining lease area was granted environmental clearance (EC). The approval was a part of a special dispensation in which India's Ministry Of Coal requested the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) to consider skipping the public consultation stage of the approval process and granting immediate ECs to coal mining projects requesting expansions up to 50% of their operating capacity within their existing mine lease area. The move is a part of India's push to enhance coal production in order to meet the country’s energy requirement.[6]
