Mining


Located on the equator and surrounded by volcanoes, Indonesia is a minerals rich country. Since the new era of governmental administration in early year of 2000, the mining industry has been growing exponentially and is now a major part in Indonesia economy. Our team has strong knowledge and extensive experience in providing legal services for mining companies of all sizes, from junior mining companies, holder of IUP Exploration carrying on early stage exploration to international companies holding mining concessions under ‘Contract of Works’ scheme with investments and projects spread across the nation.
