Inner Mongolia - Dafanpu Coal Mine
Kinetic Development has been delicated to developing the Dafanpu Coal Mines since its establishment. The Dafanpu Coal Mines is an underground thermal coal mine located in Zhunge’er Banner, Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, China, occupying a concession area of approximately 9.6KM2.
As at 31 December 2022 the Dafanpu Coal Mine has coal resources of approximately 375.47 million tonnes, comprising 150.69 million tonnes of Measured Coal Resources and 206.45 million tonnes of Indicated Coal Resources and 18.33 million tonnes of Inferred Coal Resources. Estimated Coal Reserves are approximately 171.93 million tonnes, comprising 79.17 million of Proven Coal Reserves and 92.76 million tonnes of Probable Coal Reserves.
The Group has mining rights of the Dafanpu Coal Mines, and they can be renewable upon application with the relevant PRC authorities prior to their expiration in November 2039.
Ningxia – Yongan & Weiyi Coal Mines
In June 2022, the Group became the sole operator of Ningxia Yongan and Weiyi Coal Mines by acquiring 100% equity of Ningxia Sunshine Mining Co., Ltd. The Yongan and Weiyi Coal Mines are underground coal mines. The coal types are coking coal, 1/3 coking coal and fat coal. They are located in Wuzhong City, Ningxia, China, with mining areas of approximately 21.7 KM2 and 26.7 KM2, respectively.
As at 31 December 2022, the Yongan Coal Mine has coal resources of approximately 224.22 million tonnes, comprising 63.22 million tonnes of Indicated Coal Resources and 161.00 million tonnes of Inferred Coal Resources. Estimated Coal Reserves are approximately 33.20 million tonnes (Probable Coal Reserves). The Weiyi Coal Mine has coal resources of approximately 118.61 million tonnes, comprising 38.09 million tonnes of Indicated Coal Resources and 80.52 million tonnes of Inferred Coal Resources. Estimated Coal Reserves are approximately 15.02 million tonnes (Probable Coal Reserves).
According to the construction and production plan, it is expected that Yongan Coal Mine and Weiyi Coal Mine will be put into operation in the first half of 2025, with approved annual production capacities of 1.2 million tons and 900,000 tons respectively, and reach full production in 2027.
The Group strikes high efficiency and safety in coal mining.
The Dafanpu Coal Mine currently adopts a comprehensive mechanized top-coal caving mining method which allows mining a full height of coal seams at one time, replaced the original top coal caving technology of mining coal seams layer by layer. It enables the Group’s mining efficiency leading in the industry. Attributing to the Dafanpu’s comprehensive mechanization in production, the optimized structure of the Group’s production workforce, the Group’s staff costs always maintain at a low level in the industry. Furthermore, a washing plant with over 6.5 million tonnes annual capacity is constructed in the Dafanpu Coal Mines. The Group plans to build a coal washing plant at Ningxia Yongan Coal Mine Industrial Factory with an annual processing capacity of 2.4 million tonnes to support the operation of Yongan and Weiyi Coal Mines.
Besides, the Group’s owns 45% equity in Xiaojia station and its associated spur lines. Xiaojia Station is about 1200 metres north of the industrial square of the Dafanpu Coal Mines; the geographical area is advantageous and convenient. The average handling capacity for Xiaojia station is approximately 5,000 tonnes per hour. It enables the Group to transport the self-produced coal from the Dafanpu Coal Mine and coal procured from third parties to Qinhuangdao via Datong-Zhungeer Railway and Datong-Qinhuangdao Rail Line, satisfies the logistic demands for the Group’s continuous growth in the coal sales and trading business.
The Group has developed a coal trading centre in Qinhuangdao. Coal prices at Qinhuangdao port are higher than pithead coal prices of Inner-Mongolia. Through increasing the average selling price quoted at the Qinhuangdao port, the gross profit margin grows significantly. Furthermore, the Group directly participates in the coal trading business; keep abreast of trends in price fixing, marketing and transportations, technology, safety and management in order to strengthen profitability and efficiency, which consolidates the Groups leading position in the coal industry.
In recent years, the Group has successfully established an ecological industrial chain integrating agricultural product planting, fruit wine production and livestock breeding in the mine reclamation area, making it the reclamation and management representative benchmark in the Ordos mining area. On the basis of the steady growth of the principal business of coal, the Company will carry out the ancillary business of agriculture and animal husbandry to seek more profit returns for shareholders.
In 2022, an original breeding pig farm has been built, and 650 French original breeding pigs have been introduced from France. In the first phase, a breeding area is planned to be built, including a breeding farm and two fattening farms, of which the breeding farm in Huajian (鏵尖) and the fattening farm in Lijiata (李家塔) are expected to be completed and put into production in 2023, and the fattening farm in Wulan Bulang (烏蘭不浪) is expected to be completed and put into production at the end of 2024. The first phase of the project is expected to reach full capacity by the end of 2025, with 7,200 breeding pigs in stock and 170,000 pigs of various types marketed annually.
