SHANGHAI, Jun 4 (SMM) – A total of 226 metal and nonmetal mines in Tangshan, Hebei province are required to suspend operation until they obtain a valid "safe production licence", or renew their licences, according to a municipal government notice released on Sunday June 3.

The suspension is likely to further tighten supplies of iron ore concentrate in Tangshan and support iron ore prices as a result, SMM believes

Local governments have to take effective measures to ensure full-scale suspension across those mines.

To obtain licences, mines must meet the following conditions: standardise operational procedures to ensure safe production; establish supervisory bodies; educate and train employees on safe production; provide injury insurance for employees; furnish the workplace safely; improve infrastructure and equipment to meet safety standards; and prepare emergency plans and equipment.
