The Government Targets Reclamation of More Than 7,000 Acres


Mining activities in addition to producing processed products that are beneficial to the community, also produce follow-up impacts that must be restored, such as the existence of ex-excavation. For this reason, the government has issued Government Regulation No. 78 of 2010 concerning Post-Mining Reclamation and Regulation of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Number 26 of 2018 concerning the Implementation of Good Mining Principles and Mineral and Coal Mining Supervision. Post-mining activities aim to complete environmental and social recovery activities at the time the mine ends with the main focus of the community's socio-economic sustainability.

 

"Mining activities besides providing benefits certainly also have an impact on the environment so that efforts are needed to minimize them, for example by reclaiming mines after mining activities. This should be our focus. Besides aiming at preventing erosion or reducing the flow of reclamation run off to keep the land more stable and also that the land is more productive, "said Secretary General of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Ego Syahrial after signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Energy and Environment and Forestry (LHK) in the National Forest Reclamation and Watershed Rehabilitation Meeting in Jakarta, Tuesday (23/4).


The post-mining reclamation obligation is inherent to the holder of a mining business permit (IUP), then the IUP holder is obliged to place collateral by not eliminating the obligation to reclamate and post mine. Post-mining activities aim to complete environmental and social recovery activities at the time the mine ends with the main focus of the community's socio-economic sustainability.


"Reclamation activities are expected to produce environmental added value and create better conditions than before mining activities. Mining reclamation activities have increased in the past 5 years, from an area of ​​6,597 hectares in 2014 to an area of ​​6,950 hectares in 2018. In 2019 this "It is expected to reach more than 7,000 hectares," continued Ego.


Meanwhile, Secretary General of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Bambang Hendroyono revealed, "Forest reclamation and rehabilitation of watersheds as an effort to rehabilitate forests and land are part of the Recovery of Watersheds. Forest reclamation must be carried out by holders of Permit Using Forest Areas (IPPKH). "in damage forest areas (on-site), while the obligation for watershed rehabilitation is planting activities on the location of critical land both inside and outside the forest area outside the IPPKH (off-site) area," Bambang said.


According to Bambang, efforts to restore watersheds through the Forest and Land Rehabilitation (RHL) program in 2019 are one of the National Priority programs that require real success at the site level, and it is hoped that the IPPKH Forest Reclamation and Watershed Rehabilitation activities can be carried out on time and according to the provisions.
