We should vigorously improve the level of mechanization, automation and informatization of coal production, continue to rectify and close small coal mines, eliminate backward production capacity, accelerate the merger and reorganization of coal mining enterprises, and cultivate large coal enterprise groups. 1t is necessary to establish the concept of “gas overrun is an accident”, pay more attention to gas control, effectively prevent and curb major accidents, and accelerate the fundamental improvement of coal mine safety
