China's coal mines reduced to 5,300 by end of 2019

May 15, 2020


Abstract : The number of coal mines throughout China had been reduced to about 5,300 by the end of 2019, according to a report released by the China National Coal Association (CNCA) on Thursday.

BEIJING, May 15 (Xinhua) -- The number of coal mines throughout China was reduced to about 5,300 by the end of 2019, according to a report released by the China National Coal Association (CNCA) on Thursday.

The structural adjustment in China's coal industry has achieved remarkable progress, with large modern coal mines becoming the mainstream in the industry.

As of the end of 2019, China had built 44 coal mines with the production capacity reaching tens of millions of tons (tonnes) and over 200 intelligent mining areas.

China's coal development layout has continued to be optimized. The report shows that the raw coal output in China's 8 provinces (autonomous regions) including Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Guizhou, Shandong, Anhui and Henan accounted for 89.1 percent of the country's total output in 2019, up 1.2 percentage points year on year.

The integration of the upstream and downstream enterprises in coal industry has made significant progress. The rapid development of new energy, new materials, environmental technology and modern finance has helped improve the performance of coal industry.

In 2019, China's coal enterprises with annual sales revenue over 20 million yuan generated 283.03 billion yuan worth of profits in total. (Edited by Zhang Yuan with Xinhua Silk Road, zhangyuan11@xinhua.org)
