Pannon Hőerőmű to reopen surface mine
Hungarian company Pannon Hőerőmű plans to reopen a surface coal mine near Pécs in south-western Hungary, the chairman of the local mining association announced today.
József Polics said the company is planning to mine an annual 15,000 tons of black coal from the site, selling chiefly to households.
Some 100,000 tons of the coal can be recovered without expanding the former mine any further, he added. The mine was shut down ten years ago.
