The open pit mine “Tamnava-West Field” has achieved the highest overburden production of 21,358,354 cubic meters and the highest overfulfillment of the plan of over 28%. In the Field “D” it was excavated and dumped 16,366,468 cubic meters of solid mass, by which the plan was overfulfilled by about 5%.  In the Field “Veliki Crljeni” it was excavated 1,528,258 cubic meters of overburden, by which the plan was realized with of about 69%. The mine Field “B” produced 6,063,257 cubic meters of overburden, realizing the plan with 66%.

The highest over-fulfillment of the plan, by over 39 percent, was that achieved by OPM Field “B”, where it has been excavated and dumped 1,211,541 cubic meters of overburden. “Tamnava-West Field” has produced 1,890,637 cubic meters of overburden or approximately 94% of the planned amount. In the Field “Veliki Crljeni”, where the overburden production ceased in the mid of May, 13,582 cubic meters of the interburden has been excavated on the coal benches.   In August, Field “D” produced 1,780,120 cubic meters of overburden, by which the plan was realized with 81%.

Production by mid-September

In the first half of September, according to the Production department, the Mining Basin “Kolubara” excavated 1,374,908 tons of lignite and 2,596,327 cubic meters of overburden. The coal production plan was overfulfilled by approximately 1%, and overburden production is at the level of the plan.

The availability of coal stockpiles in TPP NT is near the balance amount, while that for TPPK and TPP “Morava” are  35% and 15%  respectively higher than planned for this time of year.
