Anthracite, which represents the highest rank of coal, was formed in the coalification process when fossil sedimentation was subject to high pressures over millions of years.

Anthracite is extracted directly from the mines and contains a high proportion of carbon, low volatility and low sulfur content, which give it excellent properties for specific industrial uses, as it can generate more heat and produces less waste or as a source of energy.

The high efficiency of this material have a significant effect on its value, making anthracite more expensive than other types of coal. Anthracite is valued for its high carbon content, low impurities and high calorific value. It is therefore an excellent carbon donator in metallurgical processes. Anthracite is much “cleaner” than coking coal in its natural state and it burns “smokeless”. No coke ovens are needed if anthracite replaces coke in the combustion furnace, resulting in lower emissions.

Magallanes is currently developing several anthracite and semi-anthracite projects in Indonesia, specifically in Central Kalimantan and Bengkulu province, Sumatra.
