The Ministry of Coal Industry (Minugleprom; Russian: Министерство угольной промышленности) was a government ministry in the Soviet Union.

A ukase of the Presidium Supreme Soviet USSR of 28 December 1948 created the all-union Ministry of the Coal Industry USSR by merging the Ministry of the Coal Industry of Western Regions USSR, the Ministry of the Coal Industry of Eastern Regions USSR, and the Ministry for Construction of Fuel Enterprises USSR.[1]

The coal industry had originally been part of the all-union People's Commisariat of Heavy Industry. A ukase of the Presidium, Supreme Soviet USSR of 24 January 1939 established the all-union People's Commissariat of Fuel Industry, which included the coal, shale and petroleum industries. A ukase of 12 October 1939 subdivided the all-union Peoples Commissariat of Fuel Industry into the all-union People's Commissariat of the Coal Industry USSR and the all-union People's Commissariat of Petroleum Industry USSR.[1]
