Global Energy Monitor

The Global Coal Mine Tracker (GCMT) provides information on the world’s major coal mines: every operating mine producing 3 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) or greater, and every proposed mine with a capacity of 1 mtpa or greater. The map and underlying data are updated bi-annually, in January and July. With each update, coverage is expanded to include smaller mines. By January 2022, GCMT will have cataloged every coal mine producing 1 mtpa or greater. Each mine included in the tracker is linked to a wiki page on, which provides additional details.
