The Apartak coal mine is owned and operated by Uzbekugol, which is a state-owned company. The Apartak mine is adjacent to the bigger Angren coal mine.

The mine once produced a fractional share- 50,000 tonnes- but in 2020 produced 400,000 tonnes with plans to boost expansion to 1 million tonnes.[2]

A notice published in October 2022 by Uzbekugol states that 2022 production will reach 0.5 million tonnes and will stay that level in 2023-2026.[3] It is assumed that the 2022 forecast is accurate given that this was published in October 2022.
