Denver – TAMBANG. Seiring dengan telah ditandatanganinya Sales Purchase Agreement (SPA) 14% saham divestasi PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara (NNT), maka pemegang saham perusahaan tambang emas dan tembaga itu telah melaksanakan hampir keseluruhan kewajiban dalam Kontrak Karya (KK).

Alan Blank selaku Executive Vice President, Legal and External Affairs Newmont Mining Corporation mengaku senang dengan telah disepakatinya penjualan saham senilai USD 494 juta tersebut.

“Kami senang telah mencapai kesepakatan terkait penjualan saham PTNNT sebesar 14% sebagaimana tercantum dalam Kontrak Karya dengan Pemerintah Indonesia,” kata Alan Blank dari Denver, Amerika Serikat, dalam rilis yang disampaikan kepada Majalah TAMBANG, Selasa, 24 November 2009.

Di negara asalnya, Newmont pun telah mengumumkan pada 23 November 2009 bahwa anak perusahaannya, Newmont Indonesia Limited, bersama Nusa Tenggara Mining Corporation (NTMC) yang merupakan afiliasi Sumitomo Corporation, sepakat menandatangani perjanjian jual beli atas 14% saham PTNNT.

Yakni 7% untuk divestasi 2008 dan 7% untuk divestasi 2009 kepada PT Multi Daerah Bersaing (PTMDB), konsorsium milik pemerintah daerah, dan PT Multi Capital, perusahaan swasta. Total hasil penjualan (proceeds) mencapai sekitar USD494 juta.

Pengalihan hak atas saham divestasi 2008 akan dirampungkan setelah diperoleh persetujuan dari Pemerintah Indonesia. Sementara pengalihan hak atas saham divestasi 2009 akan dilakukan segera sesudahnya. Rapat pemegang saham PTNNT akan diadakan setelah penjualan saham divestasi 2008 dirampungkan untuk menyetujui pengalihan hak atas saham divestasi 2009.

“Bersama mitra baru, kami tetap berkomitmen untuk memastikan keberhasilan tambang tembaga-emas Batu Hijau dalam jangka panjang,” sambung Alan. Dia juga memastikan PT NNT akan tetap mempertahankan standar industri tambang terdepan, pengelolaan lingkungan yang bertanggung jawab, dan investasi sosial berkelanjutan bagi masyarakat sekitar tambang.

Terkait penjualan saham tersebut, Newmont bersama NTMC juga telah menandatangani Perjanjian Pengoperasian Tambang dengan PTMDB, yang akan mulai berlaku sejak dirampungkannya penjualan saham divestasi 2009. Perjanjian tersebut akan menerapkan seluruh standar Newmont dalam pengoperasian tambang.

UPDATE 1-Indonesia, Newmont agree further 14 pct stake sale
Mon Nov 23, 2009 10:20am EST
* Newmont, Sumitomo sell 14 pct in unit for $493.6 million

* Newmont, Sumitomo to remain operators of Batu Hijau mine

JAKARTA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - A consortium of Indonesian local governments has agreed to buy an additional 14 percent stake in a local unit of Newmont Mining Corp. (NEM.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) for $493.6 million, a Newmont official said on Monday.

The purchase will resolve a divestment dispute between the government and the foreign owners of PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara which runs the Batu Hijau copper and gold mine in Sumbawa island.

"We have a signed sales and purchase agreement for a 14 percent stake. We also signed an agreement which says that Newmont and Sumitomo remain as operators" for the mine, Martiono Hadianto, president of Newmont Nusa Tenggara (NNT), told reporters.

Newmont and Japan's Sumitomo Corp (8053.T: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), the foreign shareholders of PT NNT, will own 56 percent after the latest stake sale. Hadianto said the foreign owners must give up their operating status only if their combined stake drops below 40 percent.

The deal is expected to be settled within two working days after both parties report to Indonesia's energy ministry and receive approval from the investment coordinating board.

With the additional stake purchase, the consortium -- PT Multi Daerah Bersaing, which is linked to the Bakrie family's Bumi Resources (BUMI.JK: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) -- will have a 24 pct stake in NNT and will have the right to place its representatives on the board of directors and commissioners of NNT.

NNT's foreign shareholders last week sold a 10 percent stake for $391 million to the consortium, which comprises the governments of West Nusa Tenggara province, West Sumbawa regency, and Sumbawa regency where the mine is located and financing firm PT Multicapital, which is controlled by coal giant Bumi.

An arbitration court in late March ordered Newmont and Sumitomo to sell part of their stake to local investors or to the government within six months, resolving a long-running dispute over ownership.

The rest of NNT's stake of 20 percent is held by Indonesian mining firm PT Pukuafu Indah owned by a politician-turned-businessman Yusuf Merukh.

Pukuafu said it has filed a lawsuit against the government over the stake sale.
