JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Jindal Power & Steel has started producing coal at its mine in Mozambique this month, with first exports expected by January next year, the company's country head for Mozambique said at an industry conference on Tuesday.

The company initially plans to produce and ship 1.3 million tonnes of coal, ramping up to 10 million tonnes over three to four years, with potential to double that in the future.
