On July 9th, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev received a report on the work and progress of investment projects in the field of geology. According to the provided data, almost 3 million tons of coal have been extracted in the country over the last six months.

As a result of this project, up to 8 million tons of coal will be mined from underground and 5 million tons of coal per year will be enriched.
