Russian coal companies produced 210 million tons of coal in six months. The growth in production is taking place against the backdrop of an increase in the cost of solid fuels on the world market.

As the NEDRADV, this result is 8,7% higher than in the first half of 2020. The main production volume was traditionally hard coal - 174 million tons (an increase of almost 10%). Of these, 47,2 million tons fell on coking coal and 11,7 million tons - on anthracites.

The extraction of brown coal also showed positive dynamics. So, from January to June, subsoil users received 36 million tons of solid fuel, which is 4,6% more than in the same period last year.

According to forecasts, coal production in Russia by the end of the current year will amount to more than 390 million tons. 53,7% of the estimated volume has already been mined.
