Apart from having a positive impact on the regional and state economy, coal mining is inseparable from the negative impact that has become the public spotlight. A mining company’s responsibility is not over even though it has finished its operational period. The reclamation and post-mining are the closing stages of the company’s activities. The Istana Kelulut program is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity in the form of environment-based community development and is integrated with the post-mining plan. This study aimed to determine community development stages through Kelulut beekeeping in post-mining communities in Balangan Regency, South Kalimantan. This research employed a descriptive qualitative approach and in-depth interview with PT Adaro Indonesia’s CSR managers and beneficiary communities and a study of company documentation as secondary data. The results revealed that community development was carried out through assistance to the community, including training activities to improve beekeeping techniques to make the harvest process more effective. Innovations were also made through the manufacture of automatic honey-suction hoses and artificial nest housings. Throughout 2019, 20 people have joined as Kelulut beekeepers after seeing the Istana Kelulut succeed in developing its colony and increasing beekeepers’ income.
