MetConnex Overview


Continues to be a significant player in the global mining industry, with significant production of coal, copper, gold, tin, bauxite and nickel. Indonesia also continues to be one of the world’s largest exporters of thermal coal

The mining sector has been one of the key sectors contributing to Indonesia’s economic growth over many decades. The sector makes a significant contribution to the Indonesian Gross Domestic Product (“GDP”), its exports, Government revenue, employment, and perhaps, most importantly, to the development of the many remote regions of Indonesia.

To support Indonesia to become a significant player in the mining industry, good mineral and metal processing is needed. In the field of extractive metallurgy, mineral processing, also known as ore dressing, is the process of separating commercially valuable minerals from their ores. Metal processing refers to the industry of recycling scrap metal and metal products for reuse by the metal manufacturing industry.

Application of sustainability principles to mining is inherently challenging, as mining is the act of removing and consuming a limited resource. Uncontrolled exploitation of natural resources will cause environmental desctruction and sacrifice future needs. Therefore, the use of natural resources needs to pay attention to the sustainability aspect because generally these resources have a non-renewable nature.
