Some 400Mt will be sold outside the booming coal province and will generate around $US16.87 billion in sales revenue.

The bureau also issued a directive to improve coal mine safety measures with a targeted accident rate of below one death per million tons of coal mined.

In 2004 China produced 35% of the world's coal but its industry accounted for 80% of the deaths worldwide from mine accidents.
