Chandgana thermal coal power plant project, found in Mongolia, toward
development. The proceeds will also be used for general working capital.
Additionally, the company also announced on Thursday that the credit

In November 2011, Prophecy Coal,
a Vancouver-based company, received a license from the Mongolian
government to build a 600 megawatt power plant at its Chandgana Tal
thermal coal deposit.
The company has over 1.4 billion tonnes of near surface thermal coal resources on two coal properties in Mongolia. Prophecy Coal's Chandgana 600 MW mine mouth power plant has been permitted and its Ulaan Ovoo coal mine is now in production.
