Coal Mining in Poland to 2020

Date: 2015-09

Polish coal reserves of 5.4 billion tonnes (bt) ranked fifteenth in global terms, accounting for 0.6% of the global total at the end of 2013. Brown coal deposits occur in young geological formations, and originated both in platform areas and sedimentary basins in orogenic belts. Polish hard coal deposits date from the carboniferous age and occur in three basins: the Upper Silesian Coal Basin (USCB), the Lublin Coal Basin (LCB) and the Lower Silesian Coal Basin (LSCB). The country’s estimated coal production in 2014 was 144.5 million tons (Mt), up by 2% compared to 2013, with the majority of the country’s coal originating from the Upper Silesian and Lublin basins.
