Kamptee colliery, developed by Western Coalfield Limited (WCL), lies in the Nagpur district of the Indian state of Maharashtra (Figure 1). Here, coal seams (designated 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 5A, and 5B) are found in Kamthis and Barakar formations of the Upper Permian and Lower Permian, respectively. Coal was extracted and stowed with sand in the late 1950s and 1960s. Surface buildings over these old workings mainly include employee quarters and some permanent and semipermanent structures.
