As of 2020, PT Arutmin Indonesia, a subsidiary of Bumi Resources, operates the coal mine.


In November 2001 Bumi Resources acquired 80% of PT Arutmin Indonesia (Arutmin) from BHP Minerals Exploration Inc. At the time of acquisition, Arutmin was the fourth largest coal producer in Indonesia.[2] In April 2004, Bumi Resources brought its shareholding in Arutmin up to 99.99% and the following year undertook a minor divestment of its shareholding in KPC. In 2007 Bumi Resources sold a 30% share of the company to Tata Power of India.

The mine, which is owned by Arutmin, a subsidiary of Bumi Resources, consists of Mulia; west and north Asam-asam, Block C, and the Jumbang coal deposits. On its website the company states that "the extremely low ash and sulphur contents of this sub-bituminous coal make it clean-burning". It also states that the Mulia mine "production advantages are the low strip ratio, thick coal seams, and access to existing transport and barge facilities at Satui mine. Mulia coal is crushed but requires no washing."[3]
