The instrument of environment is an effort to prevent environmental problems caused by mining activities both in forms and its nature. The aims of the study are to analyze and understanding the essence of environment cost-loading in order to restore the environment from coal mining activities, both when mining taken place and post-mining. The type of research used is a normative-legal research. This research was conducted in the province of South Kalimantan, with the consideration that the South Kalimantan is one of the largest coal-producing Provinces in Indonesia. In addition, the environment cost-loading for investor in coal mining have the same properties in all coal mining sites in Indonesia. The results of the research indicated that the imposition and environment-cost in investment activity in the field of coal mining can be seen from the two approaches, i.e the economic and legal approach. Economic approach is an approach that emphasizes the economic benefits gained by the owner of activities when they comply with the environmental requirements stipulated by laws and environmental regulations. Realizing the importance of environmental cost-loading for the company that manages the coal mining, especially for the utilization of prevention of pollution caused by coal mining activity, it is necessary to develop an institutional guarantee of recovery from the effects of pollution by establishing fund insurance for environmental restoration as a result of pollution. Thus, in order to optimize the implementation of guarantee fund for environmental restoration are specifically utilized for post-mining reclamation, then granting the status of Clean and Clear (C & C) for coal mining investor must be presupposing the proof of guarantee fund has been placed for environmental restoration post-mining.
