Indonesia accelerates restoration of 800,000 ha of former mining sites

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Minister of Environment and Forestry Siti Nurbaya Bakar said her ministry is working to speed up the rehabilitation of former mining sites which are estimated to cover 800 thousand hectares nationally.

Minister Bakar, in a working meeting with the People’s Representative Council (DPR) in Jakarta, Wednesday, informed that there were around 800 thousand hectares of ex-mining land that needed to be restored in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, 300 thousand hectares of them are abandoned mining lands, he said, adding that most of the abandoned mining lands are in the provinces of Bangka Belitung, East Kalimantan, West Kalimantan and Southeast Sulawesi.

“In this case, we are also collaborating with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. We have started this since 2017, but the discussion is not easy. “We ask the Ministry of Law and Human Rights to immediately synergize in this matter,” he added.

There are several problems faced in the restoration of former mining land.

Bakar informed that there is a reclamation guarantee fund that must be provided by mining business permit holders if they close their mining location.

This is regulated in Government Regulation Number 78 of 2010 concerning Reclamation and Post-Mining and Ministerial Regulation Number 18 of 2008 concerning Reclamation and Mine Closure.

He said that rehabilitation of river areas is the responsibility of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.

Apart from that, he said, difficulties were also encountered in tracing several mine owners whose permits were issued by the regional government.

Meanwhile, the DPR Commission urged the Ministry to discuss reclamation funds per hectare.

“We will pay attention to this and will convey this later when discussing regulations for the restoration of ex-mining environments,” said Bakar in response.
