It is reported from Mozambique that three of the companies producing coal in that country have stopped, or significantly scaled back, their mining activities. According to the Maputo daily Notícias that are the Indian groups International Coal Ventures Limited (ICVL) and Jindal Africa, and British miner Beacon Hill Resources. Indian State-owned ICVL operates the Benga mine, Jindal Africa (part of the Jindal Steel and Power group) has the Chirodzi mine, while Beacon Hill had Minas de Moatize. All three mines are in Mozambique’s coal-rich Tete province.
