Pakistan seeks power jolt in coal

Some 70 percent of the country's coal remains untapped due to a lack of funds to upgrade the extraction process.

    Pakistan is planning to generate 6,000 megawatts of electricity from coal-based power plants, but it lacks the resources to upgrade its mining industry.

    The coal-rich mountains of Balochistan province have hundreds of millions of tonnes of coal, but 70 percent of it remains untapped.

    Pakistan's coal industry is struggling with decades-old methods of extraction, limited investment, poor infrastructure and unsafe working conditions.
