Coal mining in Amur region will successfully continue for 200 years more

All the fears about coal mining crises in Amur region are causeless, CEO of JSC “Russian Coal” Bilan Uzhakhov explained during his business visit to Raichihinsk region, where coal mines “Erkovetskiy” and “Severo-vostochniy” are operating.

Coal mining is the main industry of Raichihinsk region for more than 70 years. About 1700 people are engaged in this business. So if the coal resources will end all of them will be under risk of unemployment.

But Mr Uzhakhov assured them that the situation like this will not happen in next 200 years. “Total stockpile of our company in Amur region is 400 million tons. Taking into account that in average we mine 2 million tons per year, it is easy to count that coal mining there will last for 200 years more”, – he added.

Most of the production of JSC “Russian Coal” in Amur region is used for the needs of energy industry – for various power plants. Therefore the 11% increase of production seems rather logical than exceptional.
