At the end of September, there was 2.2 million mt of coal stockpiled at the country's mines, the data showed, up 10% from 2 million mt a year earlier.

In September, the average price for thermal coal sold to power and industrial cogeneration plants reached Zloty 206.17/mt ($56.36/mt), up 4.6% year on year or Zloty 9.08/mt.

The average price of coal sold to district heating plants rose 19% year on year to Zloty 237.66/mt.
