Vietmindo Energitama (Vietmindo) is the first foreign company licensed
to explore, mine and market the well-known anthracite coal in Vietnam
ever since the "Doi Moi" policy began.
The Business Cooperation Contract signed on April 19th, 1991 with the Uong Bi Coal Company (UBCC) a state owned company, and Business License issued on October 22th, 1991 by the State Committee for Cooperation and Investment ( SCCI ) are affective for thirty years.
Since that time Vietmindo has carried out extensive exploration and feasibility programs. Infrastructure comprising mine office, communications, camp site, workshop, and a coal wash plant have been built at the mine site and a barge loading facility constructed for transshipment of coal at Dien Cong port 22 kms away. Mining commenced in 1997.
Vietmindo is now fully operational and has a professional management team in place to develop the resource and provide a reliable supply of washed high quality anthracite coal to meet our customer needs.
