Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Poland is keen to offer technology to state-run Coal Ltd for increasing underground mining operations up to 1,000 metres from the current 300 metres.

"We are holding talks with Coal We can offer technology and equipment that can go up to 1,000 metres underground and Coal does underground mining up to 300 metres only," Janusz Urbaniec, member of a Polish delegation member, said here today.

Coal India officials are also keen for deeper underground mining as it is losing out on extracting coal for since existing technology can allow only 300 metres deep, Urbaniec said this on the sidelines of a BCCI-organised session.

11 companies from Cracow Chamber of Commerce and Industry are on a maiden visit to the eastern region engaged in mining, mining equipment, sanitary items, plastic raw materials and tourism sector.
