There is a Rare Treasure in Grobogan, the Government Opens Suara News – 27 minutes ago


Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has raised its voice regarding the findings of the Geological Agency of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources regarding ‘treasures’ in the form of lithium potential in Bledug Kuwu, Grobogan, East Java.

Plt. The Director General of Minerals and Coal (Dirjen Minerba) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, (Purn) Bambang Suswantono, said that his party does not yet have further information regarding the discovery of potential lithium in the Grobogan area, Central Java. “Oh, I don’t know that yet,” said Bambang when met at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Office, Jakarta, Monday (11/12/2023).

However, what is certain is that Bambang revealed that all chemical elements contained in the earth have their own benefits, including lithium. “In my opinion, all chemical elements are useful, yes, there must be benefits,” he added.


As is known, the Geological Agency of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) revealed the discovery of a new ‘treasure’ in the form of lithium resources found in the Bledug Kuwu area, Grobogan, Central Java.

Mineral Coordinator for the Center for Mineral, Coal and Geothermal Resources at the Geological Agency of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Moehammad Awaluddin, revealed that there was a discovery of large lithium potential in the Bledug Kuwu area, Central Java. Currently, his party is focusing on studying the discovery of new lithium sources in the area.

“In our opinion, what is more interesting is Bledug Kuwu in Grobogan, Central Java. That’s why we are focusing there,” said Awaluddin when met on the sidelines of a Geological Agency event at the Jayakarta Hotel, West Jakarta, Thursday (7/12/2023).

He said the lithium resources found in the area came from the brine system or mud and water. Awaluddin said that the water and mud samples were studied by drying, which would produce lithium levels up to 10 times higher.

“That (Bledug Kuwu area) has brine too, a brine system too, so we take samples of mud from the water. So when it is dried for about a few days the levels can increase 10 times. So this is interesting and the basin is quite wide. In the future we will “further study the geochemistry, geophysics or hydrogeology,” he added.

Meanwhile, the potential for large quantities of lithium found in this area could reach 1,000 PPM Lithium. “So our priority in the future is Bledug Kuwu, because it is up to more than 1,000 PPM. And that is in one large basin, which means the hunting field is still wide,” he concluded.

Apart from lithium, Awaluddin said the area also stores a mineral called Boron. He said Boron minerals could be used for hydrogen fuel technology. “In fact, there is another boron that is also important, the mineral boron,” he said.
