Coal extraction resumed after three months in Barapukria

After about three months of closure, coal extraction work has been resumed in Barapukria coal mine of Parbatipur in Dinajpur.

The coal extraction on experimental basis is stared from the 1314 no phase of the coal mine on Friday night, informed an official with the Barapukria Coal Mining Company Limited.

He said, at present it will be possible to extract 1000-1500 tonnes of coal on a daily basis. But it will increase gradually. The official said within the next 10 days, the commercial extraction work will start.

The extraction work of the mine had stopped after the coal at 1210 no phase ran out in June 16. As the coal ran out, the electricity production at 525 MW coal power plant in Barapukria went out of production from July 22.

The official informed that authorities concerned have been doing everything to resume operation in the three units of coal powered plant which went out of operation because of coal shortage.

Complaints of surreptitiously selling coal was raised even though the coal reserve was on the wane. Later Anti Corruption Commission investigated the matter.
