New promising coal deposit found on Russia's Sakhalin Island

The district is not in the Sakhalin gas infrastructure development plan and the discovery of such coal reserves is particularly valuable.

Russia’s geological holding Rosgeo finds coal beds with commercial value on the Yuzhno-Berezovsky area of Alexandrovskoe coal deposit, the company said on Friday.

"Quality of coal there is fairly high. The district is not in the Sakhalin gas infrastructure development plan and the discovery of such coal reserves is particularly valuable," Rosgeo’s representative said.

Office processing of data is currently underway and findings will be sent to the customer in the nearest future. Work was performed using funds of investors from the Republic of Korea.
