Mechel OAO (MTL: Quote) announced that coal mining at Southern Kuzbass Coal Company OAO's New-Olzherassk Underground mine's long wall face # 21-1-7 has been temporarily halted due to coal self-heating.

The company stated that High levels of carbon monoxide were registered in New-Olzherassk Underground mine's long wall face # 21-1-7, which is proof of coal self-heating. Mining operations are currently suspended.

The mine infrastructure, including its transport, ventilation system, dewatering, power facilities and roadheaders, is in working condition and safe, the company said.

The company stated that the timing for resumption of mining will be determined once the project for eliminating self-heating is completed.

The company stated that the suspension of the mine will not cause delay in coal deliveries to customers since there is enough coal at the New-Olzherassk Underground mine warehouse to ensure uninterrupted deliveries within the company's existing contractual obligations.
