Indonesia is a country that is rich in natural resources, both natural resources that are above the surface of the earth and which are below the surface of the earth. One of them is coal which is located below the surface of the earth. Coal can be found in several regions in Indonesia, including in Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Maluku and even Papua. Kalimantan Island is the island most widely carried out by coal mining, one of which is in Samarinda, East Kalimantan Province, which has an impact on many former mining pits left by the company and not closed again. Not only that, the mining location is very close to residential areas which certainly has an impact on the residents themselves. Therefore this study aims to find out and analyze the responsibility of coal mining entrepreneurs to the former mining pit and the location of the mines that are close to residential areas in terms of regional spatial planning, laws and regulations related to coal, and legislation related to the environment . This research uses the normative legal research method and uses the case approach method. The results of this study indicate that there are violations committed by mining entrepreneurs related to the distance of mining with residential areas and areas of the former mining excavation that are not closed or reclaimed. The results of the analysis after the analysis found the low awareness of mining entrepreneurs to comply with existing laws and regulations as well as weak supervision and sanctions from the central and regional government to mining entrepreneurs who commit violations.
