Seated in the north of China, Shanxi is an important energy source base in China with abundant reserves of coal, magnesium, bauxite, and fireclay. As a result, the province's economy depends heavily on the mining industry, in particular coal extraction, and is home to the largest group of coal companies in China. Huge reserves of coal have drawn investment into railways, power plants, and coal and chemical related research and products. Arguably the most polluted province in China, Shanxi is extremely energy inefficient with a very high rate of mining accidents. While the local government wants to strengthen traditional industries, it also wants to reduce dependence on coal. In 2009, it began forcefully shutting down mines half its mines. Shanxi's GDP grew 10.1% to RMB1.21 trillion in 2012.
