- Key infrastructural facility ready for impending ramp-up of production
- Improved coal loading capabilities to boost operational efficiency
SINGAPORE, Nov, 20 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - BlackGold Natural Resources Limited (the "Company", and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group" or "BlackGold") is pleased to announce the completion of its jetty at Kuala Cenaku, in Riau province, Indonesia.
The jetty will serve the delivery of coal produced from the Group's mining concessions. Equipped with a conveyor belt and stockpiling facilities, the jetty has a loading capacity of 3.6 million tonnes of coal per annum and a stockpiling capacity of approximately 45,000 - 55,000 tonnes of coal.
Strategically located near the Group's mining concessions and situated at the Indragiri Hulu River, the jetty shall significantly improve output capacity and reduce transportation costs whilst providing better control and certainty over BlackGold's coal distribution networks.
Following the completion of the jetty, coal is transported from the Group's mining concessions to the jetty by truck, where it is loaded directly onto barges via the jetty's conveyor system for onward delivery to its customers' ports.
"We are delighted to have completed the construction of our jetty and to have commenced delivery of coal from it. It marks the completion of yet another key infrastructural asset in the Group's supply chain and signifies BlackGold's commitment to consistent and timely deliveries for our customers," said Mr Philip Cecil Rickard, CEO of the Group. "Through reduced waiting times and increased loading capacities, the jetty will enable the Group to lower operating costs and deliver coal in as seamless a manner as possible. Endowed with this enhancement to our coal distribution capabilities, we shall continue to work towards increasing our coal supply to PLN's PT Tenayan Project".
