In 2011, Russia produced about 336.3 million tons of coal materials. This illustrates 4% growth over the 2010 total production, so 2011 became a record level year in coal production in Russia. 90% of the coal output was provided by just the 18 largest producers in the coal mining industry, demonstrating the concentrated nature of the Russian coal mining business.


Since the early 2000s Russia benefits the status of coal net-exporter. Russia became the world’s third coal exporter after Australia and Indonesia – with about 11% in global coal trade. Prior to 2009 Russia’s coal export was oriented mainly EU – with 73.4% share. Coal mining industry developing requires advanced mining technology and high performance coal crushing plant and mining equipment.

Coal Mining Method

Underground coal mining is one of the often used coal mining methods. Longwall mining and room-and-pillar mining are the two basic methods of mining coal underground. The choice of mining technique is site specific but always based on economic considerations; differences even within a single mine can lead to both methods being used. Many different types of mining machinery involved in the mining operation.

When coal seams are near the surface, it may be economical to extract the coal using open cut or open pit mining methods. Strip mining is typically used for coal. Open cast coal mining recovers a greater proportion of the coal deposit than underground methods. Globally, about 40 percent of coal is produced by surface mining. Bachatsky open-pit coal mine is one of the largest mines of Kuzbas. Its annual output is over 8 million 700 thousand tons. It extracts fuel for energetic and metallurgical fields of Russia and many other countries of the world.

Crushing Plant for Coal Mining in Russia

Coal crushing is the first stage in coal preparation operation. In the coal crushing plant production flow sheet, the raw material will be conveyed by belt conveyor into jaw crusher for primary crushing. The oversized material will be fed into the impact crusher and cone crusher for secondary and tertiary crushing. There is vibrating screen between each crushing process to sieving the different particle size.
