The National Coal Board's estimate for 1980 is 130 million to 135 million tons, and for 1985 at least 135 million tons. These figures include licensed mines and opencast coal. Production in 1990 is expected to be on a substantial scale but it is not possible to make specific forecasts at the moment.
