LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EquityNet Research, an independent West Coast equity research firm based in Los Angeles, announced today that it has initiated research coverage on U.S. China Mining Group, Inc. (OTCBB:SGZH).

A full copy of the report and disclosure requirements are available at EquityNet Research's Web site: www.equitynet.net

U.S. China Mining is an acquirer and consolidator of coal mines in Heilongjiang Province in China's coal-rich northeast region. The Company has issued revenue and earnings guidance of approximately $66.5 million and $14.1 million, respectively, for the 2010 fiscal year ending December 31, 2010.

Randy Lewis, CFA, Founder and Senior Analyst with EquityNet who is covering the Company, stated, "China's coal industry is very fragmented and, as most industry observers agree, in need of consolidation. Last year, the Chinese central government stressed the need for the country's coal mine enterprises to continue with mergers and acquisitions for the healthy development of the industry, citing low centralization, wasting of resources, environmental pollution, disordered mining and frequent industrial accidents as continual challenges to China's coal mine industry.  We feel the Company is well positioned to capitalize on this trend."
