Shares in bombed-out Oracle Coalfields (ORCP) have bounced on confirmation that the company has had its mining lease over a lignite (brown coal) deposit in south-east Pakistan’s Thar coalfield potentially holding more than a billion tonnes reinstated by the government of Sindh Province. Entrepreneurial chief executive Shahrukh Khan says AIM-quoted Oracle, whose shares fell from a 10p float price in 2011 to a recent low of 0.37p before rallying to 0.9p, is now talking to major potential Pakistani and Chinese partners about putting together a $1.3 billion (£840 million) project funding package.
