Mas Ndaru dan kawan-kawan geologist
Berita menggembirakan tersebut menunjukkan bahwa para mineral explorations / geologist masih ISTIQOMAH dengan apa yang ada di bumi Indonesia. Contoh kecil yang kemarin saya dengar dan saya bersamanya. Selama 4 hari (4-7 September 2006), saya bersama-sama dengan tim geologinya PT Global Mineral Sejahtera yang sedang kasus dengan lahan kelapa sawit (disidik Polda Sumbar karena dianggap Peti, padahal seluruh dokumen eksplorasi, UKL/UPL, dan ijin-ijin dari Pemda Dharmasraya lengkap, karena saya sempat mempelajarinya, sebelum saya disidik Polda untuk memberikan second opini kegiatan eksplorasi Global tersebut) sesuai dengan kaidah eksplorasi atau tidak?
Nah, dari diskusi-diskusi dengan Pengusaha Pt Global juga Distamben, ternyata wilayah Sumbar, sudah banyak calon investor yang akan mengajukan KP Penyelidikan Umum untuk Eksplorasi Logam dan Bijih (emas, bijih besi, pasir
besi dll endapan logam lainn), dan itu dari investor China, Hongkong, Inggris, menunjukkan hanya untuk wilayah Sumbar (Solok dsk) masing sangat menggembirakan
kegiatan eksplorasi mineral. Bahkan konsesi Horas Nauli / Sumut (yang dulu milik Newmont) sekarang dibeli oleh Normandi. Bahkan beberapa lulusan geologi UGM yang baru-baru itu, langsung diminta oleh Pak Made Surata (Geomin Antam) untuk Eksplorasi Mineral di Halmahera dan sekitarnya. Juga grup Bumi Makmur (Buma, Info dari Mas A.Kharis) yang semula menggali batubara, sekarang ekspansi
untuk eksplorasi mineral. Hebat kan, peluang eksplorasi mineral. Problemnya hanya regulasi….
Barusan saya ketemu kawan-kawan geologist dari Distamben NAD, bahwa investasi untuk eksplorasi mineral pasca konflik juga sangat menggembirakan, terutama eksplorasi mineral logam dan bijih besi. Artinya bahwa eksplorasi mineral TETAP ada dan itu cukup signifikan (itu sebagian kecil yang saya jumpai sendiri).
Tetapi, kawan-kawan di Pemda yang pegang regulasi eksplorasi mineral nampaknya masih bingung dengan belum diterbitkan RUU Minerba menjadi UU Minerba. Saya pernah dengar, jangan-jangan ini juga diulur-ulur sampai kapan karena situasinya sangat “abu-abu” untuk menetapkan menjadi UU Minerba. Aku dengar saat saya sering berinteraksi dengan sebagian pejabat ESDM waktu saya ada di tim investigasi LUSI. Busyet….

Di tengah gonjang-ganjing pemberitaan dan diskusi Lusi, ada berita “menggembirakan” bahwa bbrp mineral exploratinosts mulai melirik lagi Indonesia yang “mati suri” 5-6 tahun terakhir. Walau RUU Minerba masih “dibahas” terus di DPR (sudah 6 tahun lebih setahuku…), dan tantangan isu-isu kehutanan serta kelompok anti tambang, rupanya masih ada juga yg mau datang ke Indonesia.
Di bawah saya kutipkan satu/ dua releases dari salah satu Canadian coy yg mulai bergerak di Indonesia. Ada yg tahukah proyek2 (calon) mereka ini (A, B, C, dan D)?
Semoga iklim investasi eksplorasi ini makin baik…

East Asia Minerals reinforces its gold and copper-gold project focus; drills new Khok Adar copper oxide discovery
VANCOUVER, Sept. 12 /CNW/ – East Asia Minerals Corporation (TSXV-EAS) reports that senior management recently completed an on-site evaluation of its Mongolian exploration projects and has reinforced the current exploration efforts in keeping with its core “advanced gold and copper-gold projects” strategy. To this end, the Company is progressing with securing four promising projects in Indonesia (as reported in May 2006) and continues drilling at its
advanced copper oxide Khok Adar project on the recently identified Baruun Bayan discovery. The 2006 exploration work to date has produced positive results at the Khok Adar copper and Enger uranium projects.
In Indonesia the four MOUs announced May 31, 2006 have passed geological due diligence and meet the multi-million ounce potential criteria. The projects encompass multi-jurisdictional land positions that require a variety of title applications and numerous approvals from Local, Provincial and Central Government levels. Significant progress has been made and once in place, title and permitting will be fully secure under a globally accepted mineral exploration and development system. The Company is also investigating
other advanced acquisition opportunities in Indonesia.
“We are positioning EAS for the expected re-emergence of significant exploration investment in Indonesia where competitor activity is strong and increasing” observed Lionel Martin, East Asia’s Vice President of Business Development. “EAS is also capitalizing on its flexibility, regional technical
expertise and Asian network to research and negotiate gold and copper-gold opportunities in China and monitor developments in the Philippines and PNG.”

East Asia Minerals to acquire four advanced gold and copper-gold projects
VANCOUVER, May 31 /CNW/ – East Asia Minerals Corporation (TSXV-EAS) announces it has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) on four highly prospective epithermal gold and porphyry copper-gold projects in Indonesia.
These are advanced projects with drill identified mineralization and the potential to host multi-million ounce near surface gold resources. The Company intends to form joint ventures with various Indonesian partners to explore
for gold and copper-gold on these projects through 8th Generation Contracts of Work (CoWs).
“These advanced, high potential projects, some with partially drilled gold and copper-gold mineralization, are the types of projects and potential that reflect East Asia Mineral’s mission”, stated Lyndon Bradish, East Asia’s President and CEO. “Our capable management’s hard work and extensive experience are enabling us to acquire the best quality gold and copper-gold projects in highly prospective regions.” Project A is an epithermal prospect with related porphyry copper-gold potential. Previous reported drill intercepts include: 29.2m to 120.5m (91.3m) at 2.45g/t Au, 0.42% Cu and 12.0 g/t Ag 50.3m to 118.1m (67.8m) at 1.5 g/t Au and 0.41% Cu 38.0m to 119.9m (81.9m) at 1.3g/t Au, 0.28% Cu
21.8m to 42.0m (20.2m) at 3.97g/t Au, 0.47% Cu and 21g/t Ag
The mineralization is covered by post-mineral tuffs and drill targets were previously established by IP and magnetics. The defined mineralization is up to 50m wide and is shown by drilling to be continuous for at least 400m strike, and down to at least 100m depth. It is open to the northeast and southwest. The northeast extent in particular holds strong exploration promise, as geophysics indicates that the anomalies continue for at least several kilometres in this direction. There are two outcrops, as windows through the cover, along this extension which returned assays of 9.4g/t Au over 7.5m and 2.3g/t Au over 10m. The geophysical data also indicates the presence of other untested targets parallel to the identified zone. The potential exists at this project to develop 2+ million ounces of gold as an open pit resource.
Furthermore, there is potential to develop a conceptual porphyry target similar to Frieda, PNG, or Far Southeast, Philippines in the vicinity of the epithermal prospect as some porphyry copper-gold intrusive centres have already been defined locally and others are indicated by geophysics. East Asia Minerals plans to drill as soon as title is established.
Project B is a large, high sulphidation epithermal gold system partially defined by drilling. East Asia Minerals’ due diligence work on this project suggests that drilling conducted in the mid-1990’s was at least in part parallel to higher grade structures within the system, and hence the existing
drilling may have significantly under-reported the gold content. This drilling has indicated potential for discovery of more than 100 Mt of between 0.7 and 1.2 g/t Au, and EAS is confident that they may be able to significantly increase the tenor of the deposit by drilling to intersect higher grade zones
(greater than 5 g/t Au) noted on surface. The Company also recognises potential for discovery of a significant porphyry copper-gold system adjacent to the high sulphidation epithermal system.
Project C is a drill ready, high-grade, low sulphidation epithermal prospect. It has previous drilling containing up to 9g/t Au as well as several untested geochemical and geophysical targets.
Project D is an epithermal gold project adjacent to an inferred porphyry copper-gold system (3% Cu, 3g/t Au in supergene outcrop). At this location IP/Resistivity indicates the potential presence of a vein array at depth. The project has never been drilled.
The four agreements are similar in structure. East Asia will initially own 80% of the Joint Venture Company in three of the agreements, and 85% of the Joint Venture Company in the other, and will carry the partner through to completion of a bankable feasibility study. Thereafter the partner will contribute or dilute. Less than 10% equity in the Joint Venture Company will automatically convert to a 7% net profits interest (NPI). A one time signing bonus of USD 25,000 will be paid to the partner upon signing of the CoW. East Asia has completed geological due diligence on the properties.
Title searches, to ensure the properties are free of encumbrances and conflicting claims are being conducted in the Provincial capitals and in Jakarta, and are expected to be completed within a month. Once title is verified the joint venture agreements will be finalized. In anticipation of success, the Company is currently forming an Indonesian representative company and its Indonesian and Company lawyers are preparing the final joint venture agreements. East Asia anticipates it may have approval in principle from the Regional governments to commence exploration in about 2 to 3 months. In keeping with its exploration philosophy EAS will commence drilling on at least one of the projects soon thereafter.
