Coal Mining (Meghalaya)Frost International has leased a one km stretch of land for a period of 30 years at Khasi Hills in the Eastern Indian state of Meghalaya, and has also constructed road connectivity to facilitate the mining and transportation of coal. Owing to the location and distance of the mines, it is not economically viable to transport and consume the high quality coal within the country.
Coal mined from the open pit mines is transported via Frost International's own trucks, for export and onward delivery and consumption by power plants and other users in Bangladesh.
