The Kotezi coal mine has been proposed by the government of the Bosnian Federation as a possible supplier for one or two new coal fired power stations in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Background

In June 2012 the government of the Bosnian Federation, which comprises both the republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina and the Serb Republic, has sought advice from the Middle Bosnia Canton on the possibility of the construction of a new coal-fired power station near the town of Bugojno. The Bosnian Federation is seeking to develop a new coal mine at Kotezi. A statement issued following a Cabinet meeting of the Bosnian Federation stated that the development of the Kotezi coal mine would only be feasible if a 350 megawatt plant or two 300 megawatt plants were built in the municipalities of Bugojno or Gornji Vakuf/Uskoplje.[1] (See Bugojno Power Station for further information on the proposed coal plant).
