Chongqing Energy halts all coal mine operations after death of 7 workers

An underground transport accident at the Fengchun coal mine in the city of Chongqing, China, killed seven workers and injured three, Reuters reported Dec. 16, citing China's state-owned Xinhua news agency.

Mine owner Chongqing Energy Investment Group Co. Ltd. halted all operations at its coal mines following the Dec. 15 accident.

In October, China's coal mine safety regulator rolled out inspections of mines across the country from late October to the end of June 2019 following a rock-burst accident at Shandong Energy Group Co. Ltd.'s Gucheng coal mine that killed eight workers.
