Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments
Energy Resources LLC (ER) is seeking debt financing from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to develop Phase II of their Ukhaa Khudag (UHG) Project (hereafter, “the Project’). The Project will build on ER’s current Phase I mining operations (EBRD Project Number 39820) to include the expansion of the existing UHG coal mine and related infrastructure (eg. pits, pipelines, internal roads, workshops, ancillaries etc.). Other elements of the Phase II Project may include:
- a coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP);
- a ground water abstraction field (including a bore field and water supply pipeline for mining and mine support facilities);
- an airstrip; and
- expansion of worker accommodation facilities (to a total capacity of 1,250 persons).
A possible Phase III mine development, which is not part of the proposed financing, may include the construction of a coal export rail link to the Chinese border (225 kilometers in length, plus a 10km loading loop at the mine).
There is an environmental and social impact assessment for this project that covers Phase II and the possible Phase III.
There is a project summary document available for this project.
