REUTERS reported that China's top coal mining region Inner Mongolia will shut 22 small coal mines this year with a combined annual capacity of 11.1 million tonnes. Local authorities said in a statement that the closures are in line with Beijing's push to streamline the industry by shutting down small, inefficient mines and adding new capacity at bigger, more modernised mines.

According to the statement, Inner Mongolia expects to complete a 2020 target of cutting 54.14 million tonnes by 2018.

The region will also continue to phase out more small coal mines with outdated equipment and give their capacity quota to big miners.
