BlackGold Natural Resources' new Indonesia jetty will boost output capacity, reduce costs

BLACKGOLD Natural Resources has completed the construction of its new jetty at Kuala Cenaku, in Riau province, Indonesia.

Equipped with a conveyor belt and stockpiling facilities, the jetty has a loading capacity of 3.6 million tonnes of coal per year and a stockpiling capacity of approximately 45,000-55,000 tonnes of coal.

Located near the group's mining concessions and situated at the Indragiri Hulu River, the jetty will significantly improve output capacity and reduce transportation costs while providing better control over BlackGold's coal distribution networks, highlighted the group.

Chief executive Philip Cecil Rickard said: "Through reduced waiting times and increased loading capacities, the jetty will enable the group to lower operating costs and deliver coal in as seamless a manner as possible."
