Indonesia is poised to become a major player in the Pacific Rim thermal coal markets. By the year 2000, Indonesia projects that it will supply approximately 25 percent of the Seaborne thermal coal requirements of the Pacific Rim countries. The study examines the Indonesian coal mining industry and compares it to the U.S. coal mining industry. The report is the sixth in a series of coal exporting country studies requested by the House Appropriations Committee. The study examines the basic cost of mining coal in Indonesia and the United States through case studies of comparable mines in both countries. Unit component costs that make up the basic mining cost were analyzed to identify differences in cost structures.
