China To Close Over 1,000 Unsafe Mining Sites In 2019- State Media

Original source: Chen Aizhu - Reuters

Screen Shot 2019-05-08 at 2.23.36 PM.png * China aims to shut down more than 1,000 non-coal mining sites this year to preempt accidents as these production facilities do not meet the required safety standards, state-run newspaper Guangming Daily reported here on Monday

* Some of the mines, which produce ferrous and non-ferrous metals, either have huge hidden safety hazards even after being ordered to shut or rectify but have failed to so far; or are located less than 300 metres from a neighbouring open mining pit, the paper said

* Tailings, or waste-mine dams, that have hit their maximum designed capacities are also targeted for closure, the paper said

* The report did not give a size of mining capacity of these targeted sites

* The paper, citing a document from the China’s Cabinet, said the number of these non-coal mines fell by a quarter in 2018 versus 2012, but they are still plentiful and most of these are small in scales and prone for accidents (Reporting by Chen Aizhu; editing by Uttaresh.V)
