2  Background  Location of coal mine  Salient features  Discovered coal deposit in Bangladesh  Collection of coal statistics  Production and sales of coal  Some Pictures

3  The Barapukuria coal deposit was discovered in 1985 when the geological Survey of Bangladesh drilled a wild-cat borehole to investigate a negative gravity anomaly in the area.  Since that time, a total of 35 deep boreholes have been drilled, delimiting the area of coal resources and determining the structure and the coal seam characteristics in terms of thickness and quality.


5 Location of Barapukuria Coal Mine: Village-Chowhati, Police Station- Parbatiur, District-Dinajpur. Extent of Coal Deposit: 6.68 Square kilometres. Depth of Coal Deposit : 118 m-509m. Total Estimated Deposit of Coal: 390 Million Metric Tons.

6 Number of Coal Seams:7. Production Seam: 6th Seam. Thickness of 6th Seam: 36 Metre. Estimated Deposit in 6th Seam: 285 Million Metric Tonne. Project based on: 30 Million Metric Tonne.

7 Composition of coal:  Moisture-10%,  Ash-12.4%,  Volatile Matter-29.2%,  Fixed Carbon-48.4%  Sulphur-0.53 %.

8 Calorific value:25.68 MJ/kg or 11040 Btu/lb. Rank of coal: High volatile bituminous.

9 Uses of coal: 100% of the production will be used in a 375 MW coal fired power station. Manpower 2674. Coal extraction method: Multi-slice Longwall.

11  Bangladesh oil, gas and mineral corporation (PETROBANGLA) operates the coal mining activity in Bangladesh through “Barapukuria Coal Mining Project”.  The coal mine project is located at the district of Dinajpur, the North-West Part of Bangladesh.  Commercial basis production of coal has been started from September, 2005.

12  The coal mining project office sends monthly production data of coal to head office, PETROBANGLA, both in quantity and value.  The project office also provides information on expenditure of its coal mining activity.  PETROBANGLA, with its other production statistics, also publishes coal mining statistics in its monthly MIS report.

13  BBS uses the coal mining statistics published in the MIS reports of PETROBANGLA.  BBS also uses the expenditure data of coal production directly from the project office of coal mining for GDP compilation purpose.
