    Govt clears Rs.102 cr mine expansion
    Western Coalfields Ltd (WCL), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of CIL, has received environment nod for expansion of production capacity of its Ghonsa open cast mine in Maharashtra, entailing cost of over Rs.102 crore. The proposal is to increase the capacity to 0.60 million tons per annum (mtpa) from 0.45 mtpa currently with an increase in mine lease area to 278.68 hectares from 128.79 hectares as of now. The Union Environment Ministry has accorded the final environment clearance and the green signal to the expansion project has been given subject to compliance of some conditions. The mine, located in the Yavatmal district, has a coal linkage with thermal power plants of Mahagenco and others and the expansion is expected to improve supply of non-coking coal for power plants and also for other bulk consumers in western and southern parts of the country.
