Approving the project on exploring mineral at Ha Lam coal mine

Approving the project on exploring mineral at Ha Lam coal mine - 

On July 30, 2019, in Hanoi, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment held a workshop to approve the project on mineral exploration at Ha Lam coal mine, Ha Long city, Quang Ninh province, established by the Mine geological Joint Stock Company under Vietnam National Coal and Minerals Industries Group (Vinacomin).

Ha Lam mine has been licensed by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (License No 1254/ GP-BTNMT on May 27, 2015). However, the reliability of the reserves and resources reached only 72% of the whole mine and 73% at level from - 300m to - 750m.

According to planning project 403 for Ha Lam mine area until 2020, there will be 01 new project under -50m with a capacity of 2,400 thousand tons /year and in the period of 2021 – 2030 will be 01 new project with a capacity of 500 thousand tons/year, exploited with the protection pillars.

The project on exploring Ha Lam coal mine includes the following contents: Test drilling 85 boreholes, and karota measurement 45,440m, pumping experimental water, taking and analyzing 4943 samples of all kinds.

It is expected that after implementing all the items of exploring activities, the coal reserves and resources will reach more than 81 million tons.

The project for defining geological structure, distributing coal seams in space, clarifying characteristics of coal, mine gas and geological and hydrogeological conditions, engineering geology, and upgrading resources to reserves level.

After studying, assessing and evaluating the technical parameters and important role of the project, the workshop agreed to approve the basic contents of the project.
