The current status of technology and productivity reflects urgent need for mechanization/semi-mechanization of underground mines. Most of the underground mines, mining operations & processes are carried out manually without any automation or understanding to minimize human effort and enhance productivity. SLCMC has planned to establish pilot projects with maximum level of mechanization to enhance production from underground coal mines.
Coal washing and beneficiation is recommended to efficiently utilize the coal for power, cement and other industries. SLCMC is planning to establish coal washing plants in the province to maximize the use of indigenous coal for power sector.
SLCMC is focusing on establishing Coal Briquetting Plant for supplying coal briquettes commercially to home and commercial users.
SLCMC is focusing on establishing Indigenous Coal fired power plant. The company is planning to use abundantly available local coal for power generation.
