Resource conservation workshop in Indonesia

IM4DC is partnering with the Indonesian Education and Training Center for Minerals and Coal to present a workshop in Indonesia, focusing on ‘resource conservation’.

Held in Bandung, the workshop addresses the legislated Mines Inspector Competency for resource conservation. The workshop is part of a joint project for development and design of a curriculum and online course to meet the needs of the ETAEMR for training Mines Inspectors, and training of trainers and senior personnel at the workshop, which will review the principles of resource conservation in the context of Indonesia’s current policy framework and practice.

The online module is developed by ETAEMR with assistance from IM4DC-supported experts. This element will build on the framework for resource conservation competencies for Mines Inspectors which was developed during a previous workshop held in Brisbane in December 2014.

The resource conservation workshop provides a forum where government, industry and other stakeholders can explore understanding and case studies on the following themes:

  • Leading practice in resource and reserve reporting
  • Government and industry roles in ensuring intelligent utilisation of the mineral resource today with proper regard to coming generations
  • Identification and management of the risk associated with the development of a mineral or coal deposit including sensitivity to price, cost and technology.

The activity builds on the strong capacity-building partnership between IM4DC and the ETAEMR under a 2012 MoU, which will transfer to The University of Western Australia and The University of Queensland at the end of June.
