- 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.

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".
