The Dniprovska Coal Mine is an operating underground coal mine in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine.

The Dniprovska coal mine (also called Dneprovskaya in Russian) is an underground coal mine. It is operated by DTEK Pavlogradugol, a subsidiary of DTEK Group, which is owned by Ukrainian billionaire Rinat Akhmetov.[5][6]

In 2020, the coal mines of Pavlodgradugol produced 16 million tonnes of coal.[7]

Pavlograd is considered the center of Western Donbass and coal mines are located around the city. Located 80km from the Donetsk region, the city periodically suffers from Russian shelling. Due to the Russian invasion, many people left Pavlograd, including mine workers, and about 3,600 miners were mobilized into the Defense Forces. Coal enterprises faced a personnel crisis and now many women are employed in the mines in Pavlograd.[8]

As of December 2023, the mine appeared to be operating. In November 2023, it celebrated its 48th anniversary, having produced 61.8 million tonnes of coal and making 477km of mine workings.[9]
