In April 2010 BHP Billiton announced that it had formed the Maruwai Coal Project, a joint venture between itself and Adaro Indonesia (25%) to develop seven mines in Kalimantan in Indonesia.[1]

BHP Billiton stated that the total size of the deposit was 14 million tonnes of metallurgical and thermal grade coal.The company stated that it would be an open cut mine.[1]

The Jakarta Post reported in early 2010 that "BHP initially expected the mine to begin coal production by the middle of 2009, but in June last year the company decided to back down from its plan to develop the Haju mine, saying the project was not in line with the company’s long term business strategy. This decision led to some 450 workers losing their jobs."[2]
