In June, another mining operation permit for work at the Aduunchuluun Coal Mine in Bayantumen soum of Dornod Province was provided to Mongoliin Alt. The permit is one of seven granted last month.

Mongoliin Alt has been operating on 104.4 hectares with a reserve of 423.8 million tons of brown coal since 2009. But with the new permit, the company is set to expand its operation to 4,048.9 hectares. Mongoliin Alt now has two operation permits, while Naingi and Aduunchuluun companies have one permit each to operate mining at the Aduunchuluun Coal Mine Deposit.

In addition, a subsidiary of Mongolian Mining Corporation, Khangad Exploration, has acquired an operation permit to operate mining on 8,340 hectares of land at the Tsaikhar Khudag deposit. This permit includes the largest number of hectares permitted for mining. The deposit located at Khankhongor soum in Umnugovi Province has approximately 73 million tons of coal reserve.

The Mineral Resources Authority (MRA) has also reported that five operation permits for mining at Dornogovi, Dornod, Sukhbaatar and Bulgan Provinces were granted in June, 2013. MKMN Mining company will conduct mining at the Kharaat-Uul deposit, Eastern Road company at Bayantsogt mountain, Minii Toonot company at Shar Khad, BBJN at the Ar Teel deposit, and Mandakh Bulag company at Ukhaagiin deposit in the Khan-Uul District.

The MRA also reported that Boldtumur Yuruu Gol’s prospecting permit has been extended until 2016 at its two mining operation fields in Darkhan-Uul and Selenge Provinces.
