This program is initiated by mAAN Indonesia for PT. Timah Tbk (the Indonesian state-owned tin mining company), in Bangka Island, Indonesia. The programs will include a mAAN design workshop (will be started by a 2-3 days survey/ research by invited experts) on July 2011 and a renovation project (starting immediately after the workshop). Our actual 'working contract' with the company should not exceed March 2012, but we are looking forward to establish some milestones for future immediate developments.
