Shandong has 40 rock burst mines, the most among all Chinese provinces and regions, of which 20 have a mining depth deeper than 1,000 meters, according to a press conference held on October 21.
Shandong promulgated the first local regulation on risk prevention and control at rock burst mines in China, requiring such mines to realize intelligent mining at tunneling faces. The target had been achieved by the end of 2019.
As a major energy production and consumption province in China, Shandong has been noted by high share of coal consumption and high proportion of installed coal-fired power capacity, restricted by its energy endowment and heavy industrial structure, said the press conference.
Data shows that Shandong has a coal bearing area of 17,500 m2, mainly distributed in nine cities and 26 counties or districts. Shandong province is designated as Luxi coal base according to the national planning, consisting of ten mining areas of Yanzhou, Jining, Xinwen, Zaoteng, Longkou, Zibo, Feicheng, Linyi, Juye and Yellow River North.
As of the end of 2019, it had a total 33 billion tonnes of proven resource reserves, of which reserves of operating and under-construction coal mines totaled 18 billion tonnes and unexploited reserves were 9.8 billion tonnes.
