Coal Mine Background

In November 2011, Zhengming Coal Mine was approved by the Shanxi Provincial Coal Industry Bureau to develop. However, the construction work came to a halt, in part, because of declining coal market and capital shortage. Until early 2019, the Shanxi Provincial Energy Bureau confirmed the resumption of construction which has begun on January 30th 2019. The construction is expected to complete within 22 months.[1]
