Abstract
Merangin regency has become one of main areas in Jambi province with rampant illegal gold mining in the Rice Production areas for the last three years, giving a negative impact on the rice farming existing around the mine area. This research study aimed to identify the sustainability of farming rice based on the ecological dimension around the coal mining areas. The research was done in Merangin regency, 50 respondents as the samples were taken by proportional stratified random sampling techniques, categorized in two farmers conditions as near/inside and outside/ faraway from the illegal gold mining. In identifying the sustainability of farming ricefields used qualitative measurements by looking at its indicators. The indicator included ecological dimension such as floods in rainy season, water shortage for household purposes, air pollution, and increase of frequency disease occurring in farming rice.
