Mecsek coal mining relaunchedPublished: 1 of March, 2015

Last December tha Pannon Thermal Power Plant Inc. resstarted production at the open pit Pécs-Vasas coal mine. Surveys suggest that the 4.2 km2 site shelters about 3 million tons of extractable coal of which over 100 thousand tons are directly accessible based on the reopened quarry, without expanding the mine or carrying out any substantial additional investments. According to the current plans of the company, 15 thousand tons of coal will be mined annually at a discount to imported coal as a result of the low cost of production.
