Raspadskaya Q3 coking coal sales volumes up 3 pct q/q
MOSCOW Oct 11 (Reuters) - Russian coking coal miner Raspadskaya, controlled by steelmaker Evraz, said on Friday sales of coking coal concentrate in the third quarter rose 3 percent to 1.4 million tonnes.
Overall raw coal production increased by 18 percent compared to the previous quarter and totalled 2 million tonnes, it said.
Coking coal is an ingredient in steelmaking, an industry hit by slowing growth in top consumer China and poor demand in crisis-hit Europe. (Reporting by Polina Devitt; Writing by Megan Davies; Editing by Maria Kiselyova)
