Gujarat receives longwall approval

 Gujarat NRE has received approval to start longwall mining at its NRE No.1 mine.

The company has been working for sometime towards longwall approval.

Regarding the development, Gujarat chairman Arun Jagatramka said "the grant of approval to commence longwall production at NRE No.1 mined vindicates our commitment and belief to have the two hard coking coal mines under longwall operations before the end of March.

Jagatramka went on to say that this approval will ensure around 600 jobs in the region.
