September/October 2014 | ASIA Miner | 53 Events WITH Sumatra striving to beneft from the potential of its vast coal and min- eral resources but hindered by the global mining downturn, lack of capital investment, poor infrastructure and a trend to move away from low ranking coal, the timing of the Sumatra Miner conference and exhibition is ideal. The event will be held at Aryaduta Hotel in Palembang from October 22- 24, 2014, and is being organized by Mining Media International, publishers of The ASIA Miner and Coal Age Indonesia. It is being held in cooperation with the special task force for upstream oil and gas business activities in Indonesia (SKK Migas), Flexco, Beijing HRN International Commercial and Exhibition Co, the South Sumatran provincial government, the Association of Indonesian Mining Services (Aspindo) and the Centre for Geological Re- sources. Sumatra Miner will examine the mining industry in Sumatra, focusing pri- marily on coal but also including other resources such as gold and copper. It will also look at plans to provide more infrastructure in South Sumatra to beneft the industry. Producers and explorers in Sumatra are invited to showcase their suc- cess by participating in the event while equipment and service providers are also invited to attend in order to keep participants abreast of the latest technologies available. Delegates will include coal mining companies, industrial coal consumers, coal preparation operators, equipment OEMs, contract operators, pow- er plant fuel managers, infrastructure contractors, transport and logistics operators, trans-shipment and export terminals, conveyor contractors and operators, EPC companies, dust control companies, specialist coal envi- ronmental contractors, and stockpile experts. The conference will coincide with a Coal Club Indonesia event on the evening of October 22 with a guest speaker. As the second largest producer of coal in Indonesia and facing the pros- pect of further growth and development, Sumatra is well placed to play a much bigger role in Indonesia's economy and the event will examine ways to realize the region's potential.
