Coal Mining

Coal mining

Throughout history, coal has been a useful resource. It is primarily burned for the production of electricity and/or heat. A fossil fuel, coal forms when dead plant matter is converted into peat, which in turn is converted into lignite, then sub-bituminous coal, then bituminous coal, and lastly anthracite. This involves biological and geological processes that take place over a long period.

Coal is the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity worldwide, as well as one of the largest worldwide anthropogenic sources ofcarbon dioxide releases. In 1999 world gross carbon dioxide emissions from coal usage were 8,666 million tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Negara has entered in the Coal mining sector in Nagaland. Longleng District and Kongan under Mon District have coal seams with deposits of about 2000 million tons extended over 25 Sq. kilometres. The mines are privately owned by natives of Nagaland and have entered into a contract with us for exploration of coal. This is a major breakthrough for Negara. With all necessary permissions in place, it is estimated that commercial production should commence by April 2013 and be the end of 2013 we should have about 2000 tons per day.
