Parsa East-Kete Basan coal mines
Parsa East and Kete Basan coal mines (the latter is also spelled Kente Basan or Kante Basan) are a 15 million ton-per-annum (MTPA) pair of coal mines in Chhattisgarh state, India.
The map below shows the location of the two mines, near Kete and Parsa villages, Korba district, Chhattisgarh state.
Background on Mine
The 15 million ton-per-annum pair of coal mines are operated by Adani Mining, a subsidiary of privately-held Adani Group. The mine lies on the Hasdeo-Arand coalfield, which totals 5.5 billion tons of reserves (it is unclear how much of this lies under these two mines specifically).
These mines have been extremely controversial, as they are located in a highly biodiversity-rich, densely forested area. Local villagers have repeatedly protested against the mines, and against other proposals to mine the Hasdeo-Arand coalfield.
