Overview – Indonesian Mining Sector

Mining plays a huge role in the Indonesian economy, directly or indirectly employing over a million people. Its importance dates back centuries, starting with small communities extracting minerals using traditional techniques, either for sale or personal use.

As one of the world’s most resource rich nations, Indonesia has grown into a mining powerhouse. The country plays a critical international role as a mineral exporter and the mining sector accounts for roughly 11% of Indonesian GDP.

When ranked based on global mineral reserves, Indonesia places first for nickel, second for tin, fifth for gold, sixth for bauxite, sixth for coal and seventh for copper. As such, it is no wonder that the majority of global mining corporations have a presence in this resource rich archipelago.

Having said that, there is still plenty of opportunity for sector expansion.

Historically, heavy government regulation and significant red tape has acted as a major deterrent to international investment. Therefore, growth has largely been curtailed for decades. The government now seeks to remedy this and has initiated multiple projects with the key aim of attracting greater foreign capital into local mining operations.

One such initiative is the Mining Law of 2020 which makes it easier to enter Indonesia and perform mining operations, simplifies rules, encourages international investment.

Coal remains, as always, the dominant mineral of focus and extraction. The majority of Indonesia’s coal operations are located in Kalimantan and Sumatra. Indonesia is one of the world’s largest coal exporters – exports account for approximately 46% of total production.

Another key mineral the nation has in abundance is nickel. The majority of nickel operations are located in Sulawesi and Halmahera. Nickel plays a key role in the production of stainless steel, global demand for nickel is expected to increase significantly.

Indonesia is the 2nd largest producer of copper in the world, Papua being the HQ for local copper mining. The archipelago is also the 14th largest producer of gold in the world, with West Java, North Sumatra and Papua being the key gold regions.

With large untapped mineral reserves, the government is now aiming for significant growth within the mining sector and wishes to see it contribute a larger % to national GDP. To achieve this, it is updating regulations and ramping up infrastructure investment – to make it easier to process and transport extracted minerals.
