Abstract:The coal mining industry is one of the most significant industries in the Indonesian economy. As a vast productive coal region, East Kalimantan has an enormous asset to their region. However, the improper management of this industry in East Kalimantan has caused numerous environmental issues and even social conflicts. To reduce the impact of the coal mining industry, the government obliged mining companies to conduct mining reclamation. Unfortunately, its implementation is still hindered by various factors. This study aims to comprehensively understand the challenges faced through the coal mining reclamation management and implementation in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Several focuses studied in this research are the mining reclamation process, sustainability impacts, drivers and barriers for mining reclamation implementation, and success factors. This research uses qualitative analysis methods and content analysis. The qualitative method is done by conducting interviews with relevant respondents from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources as the regulator of mining reclamation, and coal mining companies as mining reclamation implementers. This study showed that several key success factors such as a clear mining reclamation evaluation criteria, commitment from mining company, stakeholder involvement, and an excellent mining reclamation management, directly contribute to achieving the success of mining reclamation. Other important finding of this research shed light on how a well-implemented mining reclamation can have significant positive impacts economically, socially, and environmentally.
