JATAM East Kalimantan Infosheet, June 2014  
Indonesia’s largest coal mine, PT Kaltim Prima Coal (‘KPC’), owned by PT Bumi Resources Tbk (‘Bumi Resources’) and TATA India, has been associated with human rights abuses and massive environmental contamination, according to a new report by JATAM, Indonesia’s Mining Advocacy Network.
 
The KPC mine is located in the Indonesian province of East Kalimantan and produces around 50 million tonnes of coal per annum, making it one of the world’s largest coal mines. JATAM conducted a field visit to KPC’s project sites in June 2014, visiting three affected villages and the Sangatta township.
