The month-on-month rise exceeded market expectations: Industry watchers had expected output to be flat or up slightly from September given the central government's directives to cut production and prevailing weak demand.

State-owned mines produced 60.20 million mt, or 73.93% of the October total, up 10.22% from a year earlier and up 19.35% from September.

Local mines, or those owned by local governments and private operators, produced 21.24 million mt, down 20.46% year on year and down 1.89% from September.


Over January-October, the province produced 797.45 million mt of coal, up 2.14% year on year.

State-owned mines contributed 563.44 million mt or 70.66% of the total, up 3.13% year on year, and local mines 234.01 million mt, down 0.17%.

The province delivered 551.83 million mt of coal to other provinces in China over the 10-month period, up 9.74% year on year.

State-owned mines contributed 314.25 million mt or 56.95% of the 10-month total for deliveries, up 6% year on year, and local mines 237.58 million mt, up 15.11% from the year before.

Deliveries in October totaled 57.97 million mt, up 10.19% year on year and up 4.75% month on month.

Of this, 54.03% or 31.32 million mt was sourced from key state-owned mines, down 1.12% year on year and up 3.06% from September, and 26.65 million mt from local mines, up 27.31% year on year and up 6.81% from September.
