Expansion of Mining Area Business License in Indonesia

Within a span of one year, the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources issued the Decree Number 375.K/MB.01/MEM.B/2023 on the Guidance of Application, Evaluation, and Processing of Expansion of Mining Business License Area (“WIUP”) and Special Mining Business License Area (“WIUPK”) for Conservation of Mineral and Coals, which revokes its predecessor Decree Number 266.K/MB.01/MEM.B/2022 on the same matter. With the issuance of the current Decree, the Minister has cleared up the legal loop-holes as demonstrated from additional requirements provided to IUP/IUPK holders and additional characteristics of the requested mining area for expansion, with immediate effect.
