Mawlamyine, May (28)

The mining businessmen told Than Lwin Times that they struggled to operate the business because of the unavailability of dynamite, the primary mining resource, in Mon State.

Mining operations suspended after the military coup are preparing to resume operations, but the military council has restricted the use of dynamite, making it difficult to resume operations.

It has been filed to the military council for authorization to use dynamite, but the owners have yet to receive approval from the authorities, so they have not been able to resume work.

However, the coup junta allowed the use of dynamite in the mining industry of ethnic armed groups who did not fight with them.

Currently, miners are struggling to stay afloat due to the skyrocketing prices of fuel and the scarcity of markets to buy their products.

Mining business are not yet operational, and thousands of families who depend on the business are struggling to make ends meet.

The gravel and crushed stones for road construction are mainly produced in Kyaikto, Thaton, Paung, Kyaikmaraw and Ye townships of Mon State, and there are more than 100 mining companies.
