Reuters, citing two provincial government agencies, reported that Northern China's Shanxi province ordered 82 coal mines in the first five months of the year to either stop production or construction after uncovering hidden safety dangers at their sites. The authorities carried out 2,167 inspections in Shanxi over the January-May period, with 32,612 hidden dangers and 99 major hidden dangers found, said the Shanxi Coal Mine Safety Administration and the provincial emergency management department in a joint statement. Total fines imposed were nearly CNY 61 million.

The National Bureau of Statistics said that Shanxi is China's second-biggest coal-producing region after Inner Mongolia, with an output of over 893 million tonnes in 2018.
