MUK 96 coal mine

From Global Energy Monitor
This article is part of the Global Coal Mine Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.

The MUK 96 coal mine was an underground mine, operated by Raspadskaya Coal Company, a subsidiary of Evraz, producing 0.35 million tonnes of coal per annum, in the southwest of the Tom-Usinsk area of the Kuznetsk (Kuzbass) coal basin, Kemerovo Oblast, Russia.[1] [2] It is part of the Raspadskaya coal mining complex.

In 2016, the mine was sealed following the suspension of coal production due to complex geology conditions.

The Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation listed MUK 96 on a 2020 list of mine proposals, suggesting plans to reopen.[3]
