1. Introduction to the Project

1.1 Project Background

1.1.1 Product Introduction

In March 2007, Coal Geological Survey of Jilin has made a detailed investigation on Shuiqu– Ping’an coalfield. According to the measure, there should have had about 300 million tons of coal reserves but now it has been proved that there are 122.29 million tons of coal reserves whose coal is kind of jet coal with calorific value between 4000-5700 calories. Moreover, according to the results of this exploration, it is found that the coal field lies in a good geographical location which is good for coal mining, so coal mines are proposed to be built in this region with an annual output of 2 million tons of raw coal because the resources not only can be made full use of, but also it can alleviate the situation caused by the shortage of coal of Jilin.

1.1.2 Market Prospects

1Overview of Our Provincial Coal Industry

Jilin province is located in the middle part of northeast China, with Daxing’an Mountains in the west, Zhangguangcai and the Changbai Mountains in the east. As a part of Songliao Plain, Jilin province covers an area of about 180,000 square kilometers. It is convenient in transportation in Jilin, because, first, the total length of the provincial railway is about 4,000 kilometers; second, not only there are railways among the principal mining areas, but also there is the second Songhua River as the waterways for sail. The major coal fields of Jilin province are: Hunjiang, Hunchun, Shulan, Meihe, Yingcheng, Jiaohe, Liaoyuan, etc.

There were five major mining groups in Jilin, which was managed by Jilin Province Coal Group after integration. By the end of June 30, 2011, there were 151 companies with a valid coal mine safety permits in the province. In 2010, the coal production of Jilin was about 42.75 million tons, of which the provincial coal was 28.08 million tons and others were 14.67 million tons.

3Market Prospects

In the first three quarters of 2015, the GDP of the United States, the Euro Area and  Japan's kept increasing, especially the GDP of the “Brics”: China, India, Brazil and Russia has been generally achieved great growth. In addition, IMF has predicted in its latest “World Economic Outlook” that the world economy in 2015 increase 4.2%. T he U.S., t he Euro Area and Japan, which are the three major developed economies, will respectively grow by 2.3%, 1.5% and 1.5%, while China, India, Brazil, Russia and other newly-developing and developing economies will grow by 9.6%, 8.4%, 4.3% and 4.1% respectively. As the world economy continues to rebound, especially when China, India and other newly-developing economies entities keep maintaining a rapid growth, the demand for coal on the international market will undoubtedly keep increasing in 2014.

Jilin province is in the shortage of coal, so 30 million tons of coal has to be transferred to Jilin from other provinces every year. Jilin Coal Geological Survey had developed an exploration to Shuiquliu coalfield and found that there was a coal reserves of 117,162,000 tons (of which: 82,981,000 tons of long-flame coal, 34,181,000 tons of lignite), with a prospective reserves of 300 million tons.  It is proven that Shuiquliu coalfield is the largest coalfield of Jilin Province at present.

Tax policy: for the industrial construction projects which are in line with the standard and invested by the enterprises outside the city, since the year the companies go into operation, the municipal finance get from the VAT, business tax, corporate income tax paid by the enterprises in the previous five years will be used as special funds by the government for supporting the development of the investment enterprises and will be used into the enterprise projects construction annually. In the first three years, the municipal finance will be entirely used for supporting the enterprises provided that the supporting funds can’t exceed the municipal finance get from the VAT, sales tax and corporate income tax. Less than 50% of the municipal finance will be used for supporting the enterprises in the later two years.

2Location Advantage

Shulan City, located in the area between Changbai Mountains and the Songnen Plain, which is at the junction of the three areas of two provinces( this two province are Jilin province and Heilongjiang province; three areas are: Changchun, Jilin and Harbin), with the scenic Jilin in the south, Harbin city, the capital of Heilongjiang province in the north. Across the Songhua river, there is Changchun city ,the capital of Jilin province in the west, covers an area of ​​4563 square kilometers and has a total population of 670,000 people.

Shulan City is surrounded by few of the top ten nationwide grain-growing counties (or cities) such as Yushu city, Jiutai city, Wuchang city of Heilongjiang province, and Dehui city, Yongji, the key grain-growing city and county of Jinlin province.

The advantageous location of Shulan is good for raw material procurement, transportation, raw materials supply and product sale developing in Jilin, Liaoning, Heilongjiang and Inner Mongolia, as well as throughout the country.

3Advantages of the industrial base

Jilin Coal Geological Survey had developed an exploration to Shuiquliu coalfield and found that there were coal reserves of 117,162,000 tons (of which: 82,981,000 tons of long-flame coal, 34,181,000 tons of lignite). At present Design and Research Institute of Coal Geological Exploration of Jilin estimates that there is 300 million tons of coal in Shuiquliu- Ping’an coal field. The calorific value is 5700 kcal / kg. The production capacity of Shuiquliu – Ping’an coal field which is planned to be constructed is 2 million tons which is sufficient for the manufacture and fuel for life.

Shulan is abundant of power resources, for there is a substation and a secondary substation which directly contact with the northeast transmission grid which can supply 880 million kilo watts per hour annually. Besides, because the electricity used actually is 310 million kilo watts per hour, so electricity control will not happen. 

There is 1.091 billion cubic meters of water of Shulan, including:  1.083 billion cubic meters of surface water, 232 million cubic meters of groundwater,224 million cubic meters of water which can be reused, 229 million cubic meters of groundwater which can be exploited. There are 18 reservoirs in the city, including: a large reservoir, five medium-sized reservoirs, 12 small reservoirs, with a total storage of 371.36 million cubic meters of water.

Transportation of Shulan city is very convenient. La Bin and Longshu, the two railways, runs through the city from north to south and meet each other in the center of Shulan, connecting with the country. Moreover, there are seven main top highways in Shunlan, leading to Changchun city, Jilin city and Harbin city. Roads can be seen everywhere in the towns and villages. With the convenient transportation, it is good for the materials transportation.
