Russian technical watchdog has suspended work at 20 coal mine beds in the Kemerovo region as a result of inspections
Russian technical watchdog has suspended work at 20 coal mine beds in the Kemerovo region as a result of inspections, the head of Rostekhnadzor regional department, Andrei Malakhov, said on Tuesday. These mines are owned by Yuzhkuzbasugol, the Siberian coal and energy company, the Raspadsky coal company and Prokopyevskugol, he said. Rostekhnadzor began inspections of Kuzbass coal mines on March 22 after the Ulyanovskaya mine disaster that was the largest one over the last 60 years. The deputy head of the federal energy agency, Vladimir Shchadov, said it is necessary to adopt laws banning coal mining at gas-bearing beds without preliminary degassing. “At present, there are no such restrictions. Aside from this, to resolve methane problem it is necessary to introduce tax relieves for methane extraction from coal beds,” he said. “It is necessary to create a technopark in Kuzbass to keep the potential of local science and research institutes that design mines. These issues should be promptly resolved,” Shchadov said. According to recent estimates, the March 19 blast at the Ulyanovskay mine claimed lives of 108 people, 103 of them have been already identified, 93 were rescued.
