StratOre: Field trip to Indonesia and research activities
Meetings were held at the Center for Mineral, Coal and Geothermal Resources, Indonesia Geological Agency (GA) , and at the Gadjah Mada University (UGM) to discuss the aims, the methodologies, and the preliminary results of the ongoing work, as well as potential future collaborations.
Following that, the field work started in Sebuku Island (South-East Kalimantan), aimed at observing the field features of the iron-nickel-laterite deposits and the sulphide mineralization hosted on the island. Shortly after, the field work continued in Ruwai (Central Kalimantan), where the geology of the Lead-Zinc-Silver skarn deposit was investigated. During the stay in Sebuku and Ruwai, the team successfully collected new samples and visited the facilities of two mining companies (PT. Sebuku Iron Lateritic Ore (SILO) and PT. Kapuas Prima Coal (KPC)).
