Abstract

This article attempts to identify consolidation schemes used by mining enterprises to limit the risk on European coal mining, specifically Poland as one of the leading producers of this resource in the world. The content of the article refers to: (1) model issues concerning the possible ways of using consolidation as a method of risk mitigation in the mining company life cycle, (2) identification and analysis of consolidation schemes used in coal mining in Europe, and (3) assessment of consolidation processes carried out in a nearly 20-year research perspective for Poland's hard coal mining.
