A period of public consultation will last from Oct. 8 to Oct. 14.

Since there is no target date for phasing out such activities, the ban will come into effect immediately.

The NDRC, which was established back in 1998, is a macroeconomic management agency that is responsible for formulating strategies of economic development throughout mainland China.

As reported by U.Today, the country's top economic planning agency initially considered putting the brakes on mining in April 2019.

This changes when the majority of Chinese provinces cracked down on the industry this summer, causing the great migration of local miners to Kazakhstan, Russia, the U.S and other countries.
