Next to oil and gas, coal is the second most important energy source in the world. The discovered coalfields are able to provide energy for at least 150 years into the future. Iran is placed 26th in the world, holding 1.1 million tons of proven coal reserves. This ranking will rise to 12th if the current exploration projects are completed. About 55-77% of coal reserves in Iran are found in Tabas Coalfield. Tabas coal mines are located in Parvade, Nayband, Mazino, and Abdooghi. Parvade and Nayband coals are metallurgical (coking), while Mazino and Abdooghi coals are thermal (steaming). With an area of 1200 km2 and a proven coal reserve of 398 million tons, Parvade is the most important coking coalfield; and Mazino is the most important steaming coalfield in Iran, with an area of 1290 km2 and a proven coal reserve of 400 million tons. Given the uses of coal in producing energy, coke, and hydrocarbon-based derivatives, as well as its special uses in other areas, Tabas Coalfield has potential to become a second Assaluyeh in the area of energy and industry, and this transformation requires the following: full operation of mines across the said areas through domestic and foreign investment; establishment of processing factories; establishment of power plants; establishment of coal tar refineries and coal derivative refineries; establishment of Coal-to-Liquid refineries to produce liquid fuels; establishment of factories to recover strategic metals from coal; and establishment of coal byproducts factories.
