China's National Energy Administration announced that it will curb output by 20% at coal mines at risk of bumps, or sudden jolts inside a mine that often lead to serious damage and injuries. NEA said that production curbs would be implemented on mines that are more than 1,000 metres deep.
Bumps occur when rock and coal erupt from the side of a mine shaft or tunnel under pressure from overhead rock.

The move follows an announcement from the National Coal Mine Safety Administration last month capping output at mines deemed at risk of 'bumps' to 8 million tonnes. China has 400 million tonnes a year of coal mining capacity at risk of bumps, more than 10% of the country's total capacity of 3.53 billion tonnes
