Abstract

Law Number 4/2009 on Mineral and Coal Mining has been approved by the DPR (the Indonesian Parlia- ment) and issued by the government on January 12, 2009. Explicitely, small-scale mining is regulated by the law and the upcoming governmental decree that regulates its implementation to be issued in 2010, followed by the ministrial decree and regional regulation. In the meantime, illegal mining activites (PETI - Pertambangan Tanpa Izin) reported everywhere in Indone- sia. It reminds us on the case of tremendous environmental disaster due to illegal gold mine in Central Kalimantan, inconventional tin mine in Bangka Belitung, illegal coal mine in South Kalimantan, and illegal mine of industrial mineral (C Group minerals) in all areas in Indonesia. The current question is will those dissaters happen again and can the Law Number 4/2009 prevents it from happening? Analysis on the law identifies that the law needs to be clarified with implementing regulations that, among others, regulate the small-scale’s mining area, small-scale mining authorization, the right and responsibility of mining authorization holder, transfer of authority to head of district, the right of mining authorization holder over the land, etc.

Abstract

The import-export trade of nickel Indonesia until 2013 was always in a less prestigous position. It is due to the entire production of nickel is exported in raw materials, while nickel is continued to be imported to meet the industrial needs of stainless steel, nickel alloys, batteries and nickel metal alloys in the country. This study aims to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of export and import of nickel with a terms of trade analysis in net barter, which measures the ratio of the nickel export price with imports price, and gross barter measures the ratio of the nickel export volume to the import volume. Net barter of the analysis results shows that in 2007, the nickel export price was only 0.0121 times than the nickel import price, while gross barter indicates that the export volume was 11044.87 times compared to the import volume. Volume and value of the exports are in nickel ore), while imports in nickel oxide sinters, product of nickel metallurgy, nickel alloys, nickel waste and scrap and nickel powders and flakes. The analysis overview of nickel gives an indication that international trade (export-import) of nickel has not provided an optimal impact on the national and regional economy.
