      Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah made the announcement during a fifty percent completion ceremony of the mining and power projects underway at Thar coal field’s Block- II.   Thar coalfield is a new coalfield in Pakistan with estimated lignite resource of more than billion tons. Resource planning is an essential part of the strategic plan for optimal and economical exploitation of Thar lignite. Main objective of the present research is to assess Thar coalfield as a single deposit and identify the areas suitable for surface mining, underground mining and waste Cited by: 2.

      Pakistan’s largest coal reserves are in the Sindh Province. The organic geochemical characteristics and petrographic characteristics of the Tertiary coals in the Thar coalfield, south-eastern Sindh Province, were investigated to their hydrocarbon generative potential and regional rank and to reconstruct the palaeoenvironment conditions during peat by: 2. The coal in district Tharparkar of Sindh is one of the world’s largest lignite deposits discovered by Geological Survey of Pakistan in the s, spread over more than 9, square kilometres.

      ,,, Tons of Coal reserves have been Found in Thar desert in Sindh Province Pakistan. According to Official reports it can cover Pakistan's energy needs for Centuries to come. The Value of these reserves are about 16 trillion US dollars, in order to expand it Intensive research and exploration activities are already on the track in.

The Thar coalfield is located in Thar Desert, Tharparkar District of Sindh province in deposits—16th-largest coal reserves in the world, were discovered in by Geological Survey of Pakistan (GSP) and the United States Agency for International Development.

Pakistan has emerged as one of the leading countries—seventh in the list of top 20 countries of the world after the. Approximately billion t of original coal resources, ranging from lignite A to subbituminous C in rank, are estimated to be present in the Sonda coal field.

These resources occur in 10 coal zones in the Bara Formation of Paleocene age. The Bara Formation does not out crop in the area covered by this report. Thin discontinuous coal beds also occur in the Sonhari Member of the Laki Formation.

Thar coal can sustain the production ofmegawatts of electricity for more than two centuries. With its gas reserves nearly depleted, Pakistan generates 37% of its electricity using oil.Sindh Province in Pakistan. Based on available infrastructure and favourable geology, the Geological Survey of Pakistan selected four blocks near Islamkot for exploration and assessment of coal resources.

Two more blocks were also explored by the Government of Sindh. The blocks with names, area and coordinates are given in the Table.
