Tokyo, Sept 25, 2001 - (JCN Newswire) - PT Marunda Grahamineral (MGM) is the coal concession holder of Coal Contract of Work, generation II, which is located in the Regency of North Barito, Central Kalimantan. Having completed exploration in 1999 since 1994, MGM has actually found approximate 40 million MT of open-out minable reserve with the excellent quality (low ash, low sulphur, high fluidity and high CV) for the coke blending in steel mill usage.

Itochu Corporation, one of biggest trading houses in Japan specialised in marketing both thermal and coking coal, has entered into agreements recently with MGM to acquire 20% of share in MGM through its subsidiary company Itochu Coal Resources Australia.

At least 50% annual production will be sold to Japan through Itochu Corporation.
