From an article I just read it looks like they use their prison populatino to work in the mines. Make them work 13 hour shifts and make a 50 ton daily quota, or they get beatings.

Heres an intersting photo of the ore cars:

Looks like they havent discovered the mule yet..

Getting a chance to leave prison to work in a mine hardly seems like a punishment. But if it was a Chinese coal mine I was forced to work in, I think I'd rather daydream about mines in my cell. :roll:
