The Zachulansky coal mine is a proposed coal mine in the Krasnochikoisky district of the Zabaykalsky Krai in Russia. Development of a 1 mtpa mine began in 2019.[2] But the project's true design capacity is 5 mtpa, which will be reached in 2026.[3]

In 2012, En + Group and Shenhua Corporation established a joint venture to develop coal basins. Two licenses were obtained for the Zashulansky deposit; exploration work and revaluation of reserves were completed. The construction of the 1st stage of the mine with a capacity of 1 million tons of coal per year is in progress.
