Indo Mines has started coal mining operations at the Mangkok Coal Project, which is in a major coal production area 95km north of Banjarmasin, the capital of South Kalimantan.

Indo Mines bought the project from Fireside Resources, an unlisted Australian public company, and says it is on schedule to produce 50,000 tonnes each month of high quality thermal coal by August 2010.
The demand for coal continues to expand in Indonesia as the domestic market grows to meet increasing power demands.
The Mangkok project is an open-cut mining operation that will commence production adjacent to an area previously mined.
The removal of overburden is being undertaken and the company will also continue further exploration and infill drilling while in operation to identify new coal seams on the concession.
Indo Mines is in negotiation with several international commodity trading groups to secure take off agreements for the project.
