Maruwai Coal Project
The Maruwai Coal Project is a proposed joint venture between BHP Billiton (75%) and Adaro Indonesia (25%) to develop seven 'Coal Contracts of Work' (CCoWs) located in East and Central Kalimantan in Indonesia. In an April 2010 media release announcing the joint venture, BHP Billiton stated that the "undeveloped metallurgical and thermal coal resources are estimated at 774 million tonnes."
The Jakarta Post reported that "the project is expected to start coal production in 2014 with output to reach 6 million tons per year by 2019."
