The Ban Pa Kha mine in Lamphun Province was operated by the Lanna Lignite Public Company Ltd. This mine produced approximately 1 million tonnes of coal at its peak. The company states that in 1986 initial production was "less than 100,000 tons" but soon increased to over 1 million tons. However, faced with "continuously depleting domestic lignite coal reserves" the company changed tack and began investing in Indonesia coal projects. After the Ban Pa Kha mine closed when the deposit was exhausted, the company switched to importing coal from its Indonesian mines.[1]
