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.

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.
