On January 1, JSW’s new mine acquired a different name. The mine Bzie-Dębina under development became “Jastrzębie-Bzie.” This means that the combined mine “Borynia-Zofiówka-Jastrzębie” will be transformed into a two-section colliery with its name shortened to “Borynia-Zofiówka.”
The management board of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa SA has made a decision to change the organizational structure of its two mines. The Jastrzębie Section has been spun off
from KWK Borynia-Zofiówka-Jastrzębie and subordinated to KWK Bzie-Dębina under development, with the name of the new mine changed accordingly. The name changes of both mines are of a technical and organizational nature. All tasks pursued by the mines will be in compliance with the Technical and Economic Plan adopted for 2020 and with the JSW SA Strategy for 2020-2030.
The new mine consists of the John Paul shaft and buildings, including the winding engine and the temporary administrative building. Estimated reserves of type-35 coking coal in the area of the Jastrzębie-Bzie mine are 180 million tons.
The company said the launch of the new mine will significantly improve the production capacity of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa, enabling the company to set the target output at approximately 2 million tons of coking coal per year. The first longwall is scheduled to be put into operation by the end of 2022. Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa will invest PLN 3 billion in the construction of the mine.
