Two Coal Mining Accidents in China, 2 Dead and 12 Missing


Suara.com – Two people have died and 12 are missing after two separate accidents at coal mines in China, Reuters reported Saturday, citing CCTV.

The two deaths occurred at a mine managed by Henan Hebi Coal and Electricity Co on Friday (4/6) evening. Central Henan provincial authorities launched an emergency response plan, CCTV said.

It did not mention in detail the cause of the accident that left six people missing.

Last month, the Henan Provincial Government approved the reopening of another mine operated by Hebi after it was closed for violating regulations.

In the north of the country, six other people were reported missing on Saturday (5/6) after an accident at a coal mining plant in Heilongjiang province, the broadcaster said.

China has been conducting safety inspections at coal mines across the country as record high coal prices have prompted miners to increase production to fill supply gaps.

In May, China’s cabinet said it would work to stabilize rising commodity prices, while encouraging coal producers to increase production to meet global demand. (Source: VOA Indonesia/Reuters)
