Four coal mines in eastern China's Anhui province, earmarked for closure this year, had halted production by the end of August, said the provincial Energy Bureau.
These mines include Huaibei Xinguang Group Jinshi Mining, Huainan Mining Industry Group Xinzhuangzi mine, Huaibei Mining Industry Group Daihe mine and Wanbei Coal-Electricity Group Liuqiao No. 1 mine, with a combined capacity of 7.05 Mtpa.
The province said it will seal the mine shafts before end-November, bring this year's de-capacity work to a perfect end.
