Xinhua reported that China's largest hard coal producer Yangquan Coal Industry Group has inked a framework agreement with China Mobile and Huawei on promoting 5G-based intelligent mining. The new alliance, based on their advantages in 5G and underground mining, is expected to explore the applications of the 5G network in coal mine communication, management, safety production and monitoring, said Wang Yongge, general manager of the mining group. Shanxi has more than 900 coal mines and produces about 900 million tons of coal annually, with some 300,000 coal miners working long hours underground. The use of 5G technology in underground application scenarios will bring effective improvements to safety production and the operating environment of coal miners.

Yankuang Group, a Shandong-based mining conglomerate, previously set up a joint lab with China Unicom and ZTE to develop 5G and intelligent mining.
