Summary

Poland is a mineral-rich country with deposits of coal, silver, cadmium, copper and industrial minerals such as feldspar, gypsum, lime and sulfur. Globally, Poland ranked 15th with proven coal reserves of 5.5 billion tonnes (Bnt) or 0.6% of the global total at the end of 2014.

Coal reserves comprise anthracite and bituminous grades at 4.2Bnt or 76.4% of the total and sub-bituminous and lignite grades at 1.3Bnt or 23.6%. Reserves are located mainly in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin (USCB) and the Lublin Coal Basin (LCB) in the east of Poland.Scope

Key Highlights

  • The country was the ninth largest global producer of coal and the second largest in Europe after Germany, accounting for 1.7% of global production, even though production in 2014 at 136.9 million tonnes (Mt) was lower by 4.0% compared with the 142.6Mt it produced in 2013.
  • Polish hard coal deposits belong to the Carboniferous age and occur mainly in three basins: the USCB, LCB and Lower Silesian Coal Basin (LSCB). USCB contain around 400 coal seams with thicknesses of 0.8–3.0 meters (m).
  • The Polish mining industry is governed by the Ministry of Environment including other state institutes such as the State Mining Authority, the Polish Geological Institute and the Central Mining Institute. The Geological and Mining Law 1994, regulate laws regarding mining and minerals.
