Public trust refers to a community’s understanding of the company’s commitment to minimizing negative impacts and increasing positive benefits to the company’s mining activities. This study aims to analyze public trust in the implementation of the mining corporate social responsibility program in the North Kalimantan province. The research method applied was qualitative analysis by conducting in-depth interviews and a documentation study related to the mining corporate social responsibility program in North Kalimantan province. The results showed that public trust in the implementation of CSR programs in North Kalimantan province did not run as expected. This can be observed through the implementation of programs that are not transparent in the management of IUPs and information disclosure, which are still very limited. Similarly, accountability for program implementation is not good because of the non-detailed form of the activity budget report. Meanwhile, the government’s responsiveness still needs to be improved, both in terms of implementing the program and solving problems effectively. The government is also expected to be more assertive, have a mechanism for sanctions against companies that do not carry out the CSR program, and provide intensive guidance regarding the form of program implementation and budgeting.
