Inner Mongolia Yitai Group Co., Ltd, an Ordos-headquartered coal miner in China's major coal hub, has gained approval from local energy bureau to expand the capacity of Talahao mine from 6 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) to 10 Mtpa, the company said in an announcement late September 17.
On-site inspections from authorities have proved that the mine is capable of expansion, and the mine is allowed to produce on the new approved capacity while completing procedures required for the expansion.
Talahao mine has been incorporated into key mines undertaking stable energy supply tasks, in line with the directions from ministries including the National Bureau of Statistics and the National Mine Safety Administration.
The move is part of efforts made by Inner Mongolia to increase coal supplies to prepare for the expected surge in heating demand in the winter season this year and to prevent sharp rise of coal prices that may be induced by supply shortage.
