MINING and ENERGY
Investment opportunity in the field of mining and
energy that can be immediately started as follows:
The potential of this mineral is very large due to the fact
that One-third of Southeast Sulawesi soil consist ultra basic
rocks. A careful research recently conducted prove that chromate
is found massively in tree location of the province at depth
of 1 to 2 meters down with a Cr2O3 content of 50 %.
Deposit of marble is found at three location namely in Kolaka
region, kendari region and Buton with reserve of more than one
trillion metric tons of marble and crystalline limestone. The
color are white, Grey, dark and red.
Nickel deposit is found in southern part of Southeast Sulawesi
Peninsula. It is mixed with iron, asbestos, and chromate. A
state mining company on area up to 7,000 ha is exploiting this
Capacity of power supply at the end of the sixth PELITA is about
65 MW. The state electric company (PLN) is able to cover about
25 MW only. The gap between the supply and demand will be more
increasing especially for industries. It is expected that the
problem can be solve by build hydroelectric station the electric
output is cheaper. There are three potential river for this
purpose namely lalindu, konaweha and Lasolo rivers.
