BHP sold its 75 percent share of the IndoMet project to Adaro Energy at a huge financial loss for US$120 million, well below the US$ 335 million Adaro had paid for their 25 percent stake in the project in 2010. Although the project is now fully controlled by Adaro Energy, one of the largest Indonesian mining companies, BHP’s role in developing this ‘extreme’ coal project should not be forgotten – in particular, because the mining industry now claims both community legitimacy and social and environmental responsibility, especially BHP, which for years has claimed good practice both in terms of stewardship of the climate and in their dealings with indigenous communities.
