Zambia and coal
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Zambia and coal|
Zambia has no coal-fired power generation, but has two plants currently in the proposal stage. The country is estimated to have between 10 megatons (Mt) and 30 Mt in coal reserves.
Zambia has produced coal since 1967. The majority of the coal is from the country's largest coal production site, known as the Maamba coal mine. Demand for coal is low in Zambia, with the coal industry itself consuming the majority of the coal produced in the country.
