PT Bumi Resources Tbk is an Indonesian-based holding company majority owned by the Bakrie Group and primarily engaged in coal mining. It is Indonesia’s largest coal miner by production volume and boasts of being “the largest thermal coal exporter in the world”. It has numerous coal mining subsidiaries and associates including PT Kaltim Prima Coal, PT Arutmin Indonesia, PT Fajar Bumi Sakti and PT Pendopo Energi Batubara.

Bumi produces thermal coal from mines located in several areas in Indonesia, such as Sangatta, Bengalon, Senakin, Satui, Mulia, Batulicin, Asam-asam, Kintap, Loa Ulung, Tabang, Muara Enim and Penukal Abab Lematang Ilir. The vast majority of its coal is used as fuel in coal-fired power plants.

Bumi has two non-coal business segments; minerals (operated by PT Bumi Resources Minerals Tbk) and oil & gas exploration (operated by Gallo Oil (Jersey) Ltd). Outside Indonesia, it operates in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania (iron ore) and the Republic of Yemen (oil & gas).
