BHP Billiton’s Maruwai go-ahead

BHP Billiton has announced approval for the first stage development of its Maruwai Basin metallurgical coal project in Indonesia – starting with a US$100M investment to open the Haju open cut mine and a river shipping port.

The 100% BHPB-owned Haju project is on a small, discrete met coal deposit of the Maruwai project.
The company says Haju, starting at production of 1Mtpa in about a year, will be a trial to guide development of the next stage in mining development across the Maruwai Basin, which covers areas of both Central and South Kalimantan on Borneo.
BHPB has a feasibility study underway for development of a 3-5Mtpa mine at the larger Lampunut coal deposit on the Maruwai.
