English

Sawahlunto is one of the mining towns in West Sumatra. it was firts established as a town in 1882 the dutch along with the coal mining operations during that time. coal was discovered in the mid-19th century by Ir.de Greve. it was then suggested to the dutch to mine coal in the area as it was much needed for the development of the industry and transfortation at that time. Since the discovery of coal, the area has been frequently visited by geologits.

Coal mining was pioneered in this area after the eventual “surrender” of the area to the dutch in 1876. in 1888, the Nederland indies initialized many coal mining facilitias, train trackage was built in 1894, and the firts coal mining tunnel was built in 1898 at Air Dingin, Lembah Segar, but was closed in 1932 an re-opened in june 2007.

Mining was initiated in the country after its indenpendence and was named PT Tambang Batubara Ombilin (TBO). TBO was later liquidated to be a subsidiary of PTBA (Bukit Asam) which is located in southern Sumatra. ever since the reformation, the area has experienced a growth in the mining community as the people felt compelled to participate in coal mining. Coal mining was not restricted within the boundaries of the community but also extended to the land owned by PTBATPO.
