No New Permit
Coal mining land concessions (IUP and PKP2B) has reached 19.5 million hectare, covering almost all coal reserves, resulting land permits no longer need to be approved. Environmental damage caused by coal mining activities is proven by the amount of abandoned open pits with lack of rehabilitation efforts post exploitation. Denying new concessions, both mine exploration permits and new mine production operations, or prolonging permit is a form of the government’s commitment in applying environmentally friendly and sustainable energy.
This page will continuously monitor coal mining permits. Expiry dates and exploited surface area of existing permits must be documented. With this monitoring data, expectedly Quitcoal’s proposal can gradually be applied by the government.
