Our subsidiary Adaro Indonesia is currently producing out of a single concession near Tabalong at the northern border of South Kalimantan, which has grown over two decades to become the largest single-site mine in the southern hemisphere.

In 2013, we added coal resources through the acquisition of 75% of three companies with mining licences for a greenfield coal deposit 11km southeast of AI’s concession in the Balangan district of South Kalimantan. We produced 1.1Mt of coal from one of these, PT Semesta Centramas (SCM), in 2015.

We are also preparing for mining at properties that we have recently acquired in the other three of Indonesia’s four key coal-producing provinces: South Sumatra, Central Kalimantan and East Kalimantan.

The coal from our South Kalimantan mine is marketed as Envirocoal due to its extremely low content of ash (1-2%), low nitrogen (0.9%) and ultra-low sulphur (0.2%). Its heat value, depending on where in the deposit it has been mined, ranges from about 4,000 kcal/kg to about 5,000 kcal/kg.

The coal from our nearby Balangan concession has a calorific value of 4,400 kcal/kg gar and shares similar characteristics with Envirocoal.

We place significant importance on employee workplace safety. Safe and reliable operations create trust with our partners and stakeholders.

We measure safety principally using the lost-time injury frequency rate (LTIFR), the number of lost-time injuries per one million hours worked, and and severity rate (SR), an index representing the number of days lost per one million work-hours.

We recorded 101,924,707 total manhours across Adaro, and an LTIFR of just 0.09, half as high as in 2014. That corresponds to just nine LTIs in the whole year for more than 100 million hours worked. Our SR for 2015 was 120.84, also dropped form 122.8 in 2014.

After establishing an emergency response team at Adaro Indonesia in 2007, we have also built and maintain emergency response base stations as well as operating a 24-hour call center to provide immediate response for any type of emergency.

Having large-scale, open-pit mining operations such as ours requires a prudent approach to every challenge, and especially in the management of overburden removed daily.

We carry out reclamation of land in areas affected by mining operations before and after those operations cease. Water run-off from disturbed areas is closely monitored and treated in settling ponds before being discharged into the rivers at the required environmental quality level. We also undertake continuous air monitoring around our mining operations.

In 2012, Adaro Indonesia became the first mining company to ever receive the Indonesian Government’s Gold PROPER award since it was introduced in 2002. The award is regarded as the highest standard in Indonesian environmental rehabilitation management practice.

In 2015, the government acknowledged our environmental efforts with several awards. For the sixth straight year, we received the Aditama award in coal mining environment management from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

We also received the PROPER Green award for a seventh time from the Ministry of Environment. A green rating signifies that Adaro fully complies with environmental regulatory requirements and excels in environmental management, conservation of resources and community development.

We believe that community development programs are part of our core strategy and essential to sustaining our record of production growth.

We invest chiefly in educational enhancement, economic development, health improvement and socio-cultural promotion.

Realizing that mining is a temporary business by nature, we established a non-profit foundation called Yayasan Adaro Bangun Negeri (Adaro Building the Nation Foundation) in 2009 to ensure sustainability of Adaro’s community development program.
