That is Pulau Yu (Yu island) off the east coast of Halmahera. There is a place called Omnial there.

I don't know, I looked it up at a map of the Moluccas, I think very difficult to reach. There is a somewhat bigger Island close called Pulau Gebe. Omnial seems to be nearly right on the equator.

On Pulau Gebe there seems to be a Nickel mine, but maybe already closed.
