On 1 January 2020, JSW’s new mine acquired a different name. The Bzie-Debina, which is under development in Poland, became “Jastrzebie-Bzie”. This means that the combined mine “Borynia-Zofiówka-Jastrzebie” will be transformed into a two section colliery with its name shortened to ‘Borynia-Zofiówka’.
The company’s management board has decided to change the organisational structure of its two mines starting on 1 January 2020.
The Jastrzebie Section has been spun off from KWK Borynia-Zofiówka-Jastrzebie and subordinated to KWK Bzie-Debina under development, with the name of the new mine changed accordingly. The name changes of both mines are of a technical and organisational nature. All tasks pursued by the mines will be in compliance with the Technical and Economic Plan adopted for 2020 and with the JSW SA Strategy for 2020-2030.
The new mine consists of the John Paul shaft and buildings, including the winding engine and the temporary administrative building. Estimated reserves of type-35 coking coal in the area of the Jastrzebie-Bzie mine are 180 million t.
The launch of the new mine is expected to improve the production capacity of JSW and enable the company to set the target output at approximately 2 million tpy of coking coal. The first longwall is scheduled to be put into operation by the end of 2022. JSW will invest PLN3 billion in the construction of the mine.
