The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) said it has granted the so-called C&C status for another group of 168 miners holding the IUP mining business license, both coal and mineral.

The ministry’s Directorate General of Mineral and Coal said in a statement seen Tuesday that this is the 16th batch of miners obtaining the clean and clear (C&C) status since the first group of firms obtained the status in 2011, after complying with the requirements set in the 2009 Mining Law and Government Regulation No 23/2010 including there is no overlapping of permit in the mining concession, and able to show the necessary proper documents.

The government has introduced the C&C certification in a bid to sort out the mess resulting from the aggressive issuance of mining permits by regional governments after they won autonomy power several years ago. Of the more than 10,000 IUP mining permits, it is estimated that about half have yet to obtain the C&C certification.
