Barapukuria's existing contract with a Chinese company will expire in 2011, and Peabody has expressed interest in mining the area. In March 2011, Barapukuria had a proven reserve of around 389 million tons of coal, and the company expects to extract 10 to 20 per cent of the total reserves through underground mining within the next 30 years. The government has so far extracted less than four million tons of coal from the mine. Peabody operates worldwide including the U.S., United Kingdom, Australia, Mongolia, China, Singapore and Indonesia.[1]
