 Investigation progress of illegal mining in Muli mining area, Qinghai


Teng Jiacai, member of the Standing Committee of the Qinghai provincial Party committee, Secretary of the provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection, and director of the provincial supervision commission: after preliminary investigation and verification, he was then member of the Standing Committee of the Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, executive deputy governor, and deputy director of the Management Committee of the Qaidam circular economy experimental zone. He is now member of the Standing Committee of the Haixi Prefecture, executive deputy secretary of the Party Working Committee and executive deputy director of the Management Committee of the Qaidam circular economy experimental zone Li Yongping (deputy department level), member of the Party Working Committee of the state peoples government, member of the Party Working Committee of the Qaidam circular economy Experimental Zone, full-time deputy director of the management committee and director of the Muli coal field administration bureau, was derelict in his duty and was responsible for the supervision of the illegal mining of Xingqing company. After the study and decision of the provincial Party committee, Liang Yanguo and Li Yongping were removed from their posts and accepted the organizational investigation.

At the same time, the provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection and supervision decided to put on file and investigate the relevant leading cadres suspected of dereliction of duty and responsibility by the Party committee and government of Haixi Prefecture, the Party Working Committee of Chaidamu circular economy Experimental Zone, the Provincial Department of natural resources, and the Provincial Department of ecological environment.

According to the authority of cadre management, the Commission for Discipline Inspection and supervision of Haixi prefecture has also started the investigation and verification of suspected dereliction of duty and responsibility by the relevant regulatory departments of Haixi Prefecture, the Party committee and county government of Tianjun county and relevant departments. Among them, three responsible leading cadres have been removed from office by the Party committee of Haixi Prefecture and are under investigation.

In the investigation, if we find that there are collusion between officials and businessmen, trading of power and money, and transfer of interests behind the illegal exploitation of Xingqing company, we will resolutely investigate to the end and will not tolerate it, no matter who or what level is involved.

Three years ago, the problem of ecological and environmental protection in Qilian Mountains was reported by the central government. The unprecedented accountability storm opened the largest ecological defense war in the history of Qilian Mountains. After more than two years of follow-up investigation by the reporter of economic reference news, it is found that under the high pressure of reporting responsibility, the ecological protection of Qilian Mountain has achieved overall results, but the illegal mining in Juhugeng mining area of Muli Coalfield in the hinterland of Qinghai Province has not been completely eradicated. Large scale and destructive illegal open-pit mining of coal mines is adding new great trauma to the original alpine grassland wetland, and the local ecology of the headwaters of the Yellow River, Qinghai Lake and Qilian Mountains and rivers are facing damage.

The reporter of economic reference daily confirmed that it was a private enterprise named Qinghai Xingqing industry and Trade Engineering Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Xingqing company) that caused the regional ecological disaster. Ma Shaowei, chairman of Xingqing company, is known as the invisible richest man in Qinghai Province. For 14 years, he has occupied Juhugeng coal mine in Muli mining area. He is suspected of illegal mining of more than 26 million tons without license, making a profit of more than 10 billion yuan.

It is incredible that under the background of two rounds of central environmental protection supervision and Qinghai provinces call to stop all mining activities in Muli Coalfield and carry out ecological environment improvement, Xingqing companys illegal mining in Muli Juhugeng coal mine has not been shaken. Today, Xingqing company is still carrying out predatory mining in the name of restoration and management, and the old ecological debt has not been paid back.
