Contract of Work

We operate under the legal framework of CoW which was amended on October 17th, 2014 and is valid until December 28th, 2025 with a concession area of 118,017 hectares covering South Sulawesi (70,566 hectares), Central Sulawesi (22,699 hectares) and Southeast Sulawesi (24,752 hectares).
The Company mines laterite nickel ore and processes it into the final product of nickel in matte. The average volume of nickel production per year reaches 75,000 tons. In producing nickel in the Sorowako Block, we use pyro metallurgical technology (in melting the laterite nickel ore). Our’s nickel product is exported entirely to Vale Canada Limited and Sumitomo Metal Mining in a long-term special contract agreed upon by the two companies.
The Company also continues its plan to construct nickel processing plant and its facilities in Sambalagi, Morowali Regency, Central Sulawesi and in Pomalaa, Kolaka Regency, Southeast Sulawesi. The project in Bahodopi, is to build a smelter to process saprolite nickel ore and produce ferronickel, a main material for stainless steel making. In Pomalaa, the project is to build a processing facility with HPAL (High Pressure Acid Leaching) technology to process limonite ore and produce intermediate product which can be further processing to material for Electric Vehicle (“EV”) battery.


VCL, part of Vale Base Metals and the second largest nickel producer in the world, currently has 43.79% of our shares. While SMM, one of the largest mining and smelting companies in Japan, owns 15.03% of our shares. On October 7, 2020, Inalum, now known as MIND ID has 20% of our shares.
