In the framework of strategic local mineral processing in Indonesia based on low cost and zero-waste technology, it is necessary to collaborate with all parties, including government, industries, researchers, and universities, as well as harmonizing upstream-downstream mineral and coal policies. The development of mineral and coal processing technology needs to be focused on exploiting the added value and characteristics of each mineral resources.

“Downstream Mineral Processing, Key to Optimize Mineral Utilization”

Head of Geological Agency (2008-2013)
Director General of Mineral & Coal, Ministry of Energy
Various parties in Indonesia, both government, industries, and educational institutions have the awareness to initiate exploration of critical elements and have succeeded in identifying the existence of new REE resources, but it has not been recognized as reserves due to constraints on low concentration and tonnage. As one of the solutions, the exploration of critical elements must be carried out more systematically with a more detailed evaluation. Characterization is one of the most important processes that will influence the extraction process, so that total extraction can be achieved which will add the economic value of exploiting critical elements.

This geological mapping activity is one of the efforts to support the increase of coal production and the development plan of new PLTU in South Sumatra.
The UGRG team resumed its observation and sampling activities in the field. The fieldwork this time was a geological mapping conducted in the Tanjung Enim area, South Sumatra. This mapping activity is a form of cooperation between the UGRG Team and one of the coal mining
The fieldwork this time was carried out in coal mines and several PLTU locations around Tanjung Enim. This activity aims to review the potential of Rare Earth Element and Yttrium in coal and fly ash-bottom ash (FABA).
