Let's not forget why Belitung was one of the invaded province by the dutch colony hundreds years ago. Belitung was once a huge gem for tin and kaolin resources, and yeah it is also true that Belitung is the largest and finest tin and kaolin producer in Indonesia. You can see the trail all over the island and some even have their own uniqueness, for example the kaolin lake. Things just got serious up until the government ban the mining forever, both for tin and kaolin, as it is damaging the environment, but for some businessmen, laws are made to be broken, and they keep doing what they did. The rest of the local miners started their life as farmers and some choose to be fishermen in this blessed island.
