Reuters citing, the government, as saying that top Polish government officials will meet on Tuesday to discuss a threat by Australia’s Prairie Mining to sue Warsaw over difficulties it faced in developing two coal projects. Prairie Mining said that it has struggled to get permission to develop the Jan Karski and Debiensko mines and warned the Polish government it could take the case to international arbitration if it could not be resolved amicably.

Three sources said that the government’s economic committee (KERM), which includes the prime minister and the energy minister, will meet on Tuesday to discuss the possible arbitration case, the government said in a statement. The talks had been initially planned for last Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Prairie’s mining projects include coking coal as well as thermal coal. Thermal coal, used for power, is struggling to attract investment because of environmental concerns, but coking coal - which is used in steelmaking - is still viewed as a strategic mineral.
