Coal Mine Background

On December 5th 2017, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) has ratified the construction of Xiaobaodang No.2 mine, approving a production capacity of 8Mt/year at the initial phase, and a total capacity of 13Mt/year. [2]

On Jan. 25th 2019, the NDRC has approved the proposed change in plan of constructing Xiaobaodang No.2 mine. Instead of operating after completing the construction of the initial phase(8Mt/year) of the project, the official operation can only be realized when the whole project with a production capacity of 13Mt/year completes.[3]
