As we read in “Dziennik Gazeta Prawna”, Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa may buy from the Australian Prairie Mining a license for the closed Dębieńsko mine.
– We have met with representatives of Prairie Mining in recent days. We discussed the possible ways of cooperation – said JS Katarzyna, spokeswoman Katarzyna Jabłońska-Bajer, quoted by DGP.
– Dębieńsko is a top class deposit of type 35 coking coal, which has been included in the list of critical raw materials of the EU and is indispensable for the steel industry. Our priority has always been the construction of modern and effective mines in Poland. We are open to cooperation – said DGP president Prairie Mining, Benjamin Stoikovich.
The newspaper reminds that JSW would like to reach for coking coal from the inactive Dębieńsko mine first from the side of its Knurów-Szczygłowice mine, which could take even half a year, and then build a new shaft. The Jastrzębska company has just submitted an offer for the purchase of Przedsiębiorstwo Budowy Szybów to the Famur Group.
DGP also points out that on Friday JSW will announce a strategy on the WSE by 2030, which included a record of an increase in coal production compared to 2017 by 3.5 million tonnes, with coking coal of 5.2 million tonnes . This goal will not be possible without a new mine. At the same time, the construction or reactivation of two coal mines was also included in the governmental program for Silesia.
