  • Having set a production target of extracting 67.5 million tonnes of coal for 2020-21, the SCCL management was planning to make most of the expansion of the two mines having the extractable fuel-mineral of 96.75 million tonnes together planned to be mined over 11 years.
  • The expert panel also highlighted the need for compliance of all conditions pertaining to the earlier environmental clearance (EC) with strict time-lines as no commitment on the compliance was given at the virtual meet held due to the lockdown conditions.
  • The mine lease area has a geological reserve of 402.01 million tonnes with 308.35 million tonnes of mineable reserves and 290.55 million tonnes of extractable coal.
