sxcoal.com General,  Production & Sales 2024-04-15 17:07:39

China's state planner has approved the construction of Kongduigou coal mine project in Inner Mongolia's Ordos city, local media reported on April 9.

 

The Kongduigou mine, located in the northern mining area of Zhunge'er Banner in Ordos, is a subsidiary of Datang Int'l Zhunge'er Mining Co., Ltd.

 

It is designed with a production capacity of 7 million tonnes per annum, equipped with a same-capacity washing plant.

 

Its total mining field reached 39.87 square kilometers, with 829 million tonnes of resource reserves. It boasts 526 million tonnes of recoverable reserves, mainly of long-flame coal, which is a high-quality grade for power generation.

 

Coal output of the mine could be shipped via the Hohhot-Zhungeer rail line and Inner Mongolia-Hebei line to Caofeidian port, supplying coal to power plants along the railways and those coastal utilities affiliated with the China Datang Corporation Ltd.

 

With a total investment of 6.96 billion yuan, the project was the first newly-built project in China with the capacity replacement permission. It is also the first mega project approved by the NDRC in Inner Mongolia in the past two years.

 

The mine marks another mega underground coal mine independently constructed by the group in Inner Mongolia, following the capacity expansion and production resumption of two other mines.

 

The Kongsuigou mine will officially commence operation in March 2027, striving to ensure energy supply.
