Environment Preservation: The company is making a significant contribution to improve environment and ecological balance by replacing clay-burnt bricks in construction works. Present brick manufacturing not only causes damage to agricultural land but also causes deforestation due to indiscriminate use of fire-wood in brick-field and other purposes. This will significantly reduce production of bricks for construction purposes and thus held to check deforestation. The company has taken up necessary steps to preserve environment at the project site during its implementation project. The mine water are being examine regularly in order to prevent pollution of surrounding areas. Besides various gases which evolved due to blasting are measured by gas analyzer regularly. With the help of spraying and water using local fan, gases are diluted and eliminated as such miners are saved from any hazards. In line of the Government policy, 2818 nos. of different varieties saplings were planted in the mine area in order to keep ecological balance. Socio Economic Development of the Project Area: The following Socio Economic Development had been established because of the company: Up-gradation & completion of existing Phulbari - Maddhapara Road (13 km) by Roads and High ways Department.

Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Limited (BCMCL)
BACKGROUND: The Barapukuria coal deposit was discovered in 1985 when the geological Survey of Bangladesh drilled a wild-cat borehole to investigate a negative gravity anomaly in the area. Since that time, a total of 35 deep boreholes have been drilled, delimiting the area of coal resources and determining the structure, and the coal seam characteristics in terms of thickness and quality. The surface geology over the entire project area comprises the Tertiary Dupi Tila formation, which unconformably overlays the Gondwana (Permian) coal-bearing sediments. These are folded into an asymmetric syncline or basin, whose axis strikes approximately north-south. A major fault forms the eastern limit of the deposit, beyond which, Archaean basement rocks (Pre-Cambrian) are present immediately below the Dupi Tila. Several lesser faults have been identified within the coal basin by geophysical seismic surveying. The Gondwana sequence comprises predominantly sandstones, with subordinate siltstones and mudstones, which contain up to six coal seams in the centre of the basin. The lowest of these, Seam VI is the principal target seam of the mine project, and has an average thickness of 36m. It consists of a weakly-caking bituminous coal with average sulphur content of about 0.53% making it an ideal fuel for power generation, which is the primary identified market for the coal. In-seam inclusions of dirt (non-coal material) are variable, but mainly restricted to the uppermost and lowermost sections of the seam. The western, northern and southern limits of the deposit are formed by the subcrop of seam VI beneath the basal Dupi Tila unconformity. An in-situ reserve base of more than 200 Mt of coal has been calculated for the entire area. Recovery will be constrained by mine layout, method of extraction, and the number of slices to be mined, all of which will be dependent on experience gained during the initial production phases.

Mining became part of Petrobangla operation in 1985, when the erstwhile Bangladesh Mineral Exploration & Development Corporation was merged with Petrobangla. Till date, major mineable deposits of coal, limestone and granite has been discovered in Bangladesh. These are often at a deeper depth than conventionally exploited elsewhere. However, lack of surface or shallower deposits and overall competitiveness against import has encouraged development of underground mines to exploit such resources. At present two major mines are operated to extract about 1 million tons of coal and 1.65 million tons of granite respectively from the Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Limited and Maddhapara Granite Mining Company Ltd.

Urge Bangladesh to Ban Open-pit Coal Mining in Phulbari
By Ahni Feb 8, 2011
The London-based mining company Global Coal Management Resources (GCM) has managed with the government of Bangladesh over their proposed Phulbari open-pit coal mine, a project that would negatively impact, according to some estimates, up to 470,000 people. GCM fled from the Phulbari region in 2006, after the Bangladesh government promised to ban openpit coal mining and expel the mining company, which was then known as Asia Energy Corporation. Just prior to the agreement, in August 2006, tens of thousands of people issued a resounding "NO" to the project, which would have been the largest open pit coal mine in the world. As reported at the time, "Hundreds of paramilitary forces—BDR, police and other security agencies—heavily guarded the offices of Asia Energy." BDR then opened on the crowd, killing three people and injuring hundreds more. From that point on, the government had no choice but to concede to the villagers' demands. Unfortunately, after five years of waiting, the government still hasn't fulfilled those promises. And now, Cultural Survival (CS) reports, they're planning to introduce a new coal policy by June 2011. "Global Coal expects to be in business soon thereafter," says CS. According to GCM's own estimates, 40,000 people would be displaced by the mine, including 2,200 Indigenous people. However, "A government-sponsored study estimates that 130,000 people in over 100 villages would be immediately displaced and another 100,000 would gradually be forced to leave as their wells and irrigation canals run dry from the mining," explains CS. Other groups say that anywhere up to 470,000 people would be directly and indirectly effected, including 50,000 Indigenous people from 23 different tribal groups. According to Bank Track, the project would also lay waste to "1,577 ponds (used to earn income through sale of fish); 80,000 fruit and timber trees (plus many thousands of bamboo sticks); 928 businesses; 36,052 homes, barns, boundary walls and toilets; 106 schools; 48 health facilities; 138 mosques, temples and churches; 692 graveyards; and 2 ancient archaeological sites." In light of these obviously-unacceptable risks; and the fact that GCM has managed to re-open talks with the government (not to mention recent revelations concerning US diplomats putting pressure on the government) we can be sure that local opposition to open pit coal mining is going to grow once more.
