The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Papua, and it has 19,500 employees. It is mostly owned by Freeport-McMoRan, which owns 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia, the principal operating subsidiary in Indonesia, including 9.36% owned through its wholly owned subsidiary, PT Indocopper Investama. The Government of Indonesia owns the remaining 9.36% of PT Freeport Indonesia. FCX operates under an agreement with the Government of Indonesia, which allows Freeport to conduct exploration, mining and production activities in a 27,400-acre area (Block A). It also conducts exploration activities in an 413,000-acre area (Block B). All of Freeport's proven and probable mineral reserves and current mining operations are located in Block A. The 2006 production was 610,800 tonnes of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold; and 174,458,971 grams of silver.

May 2006 One of the most volatile and reclusive figures in PNG's recent history, Francis Ona has re-emerged from his mountain hideaway. Ona is the man who created the secessionist Bougainville Revolutionary Army, or BRA, in 1989 originally to fight against the operations of the Panguna mining company which Ona believed was destroying the land and environment, and paying little or no compensation to the owners of the land. The Panguna Mine - then the largest copper mine in the world - was closed, and remains closed today. The BRA fought a savage civil war for independence against the PNG government during the 1990s.

Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far richer in gold and copper than ores found on land. Mike Johnston, chief executive of Nautilus Minerals told the BBC "that a temperature probe left in place for 18 months was found to have 'high grade copper all over it'." Nautilus announced in April that it had completed its bulk cutter, the first component of its Seafloor Production Tools system, which will be used to mine the seabed. Nautilus also approximately 500,000 square kilometres of "highly prospective exploration acreage" in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga, as well as in international waters in the eastern Pacific, the company said in a press release. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Tabubil is a planned, company operated township located in the Star Mountains area of the North Fly District of Western Province, Papua New Guinea. The town, including the adjoining relocated village of Wangabin and the industrial area of Laydown (where industrial equipment was originally laid down before being installed at the mine ~1970–1980), is the largest settlement in the province, although the provincial capital, Daru is a similar size. It had a recorded population of 10,270 at the 2011 census. Tabubil is set in extremely dense jungle fed by one of the highest rainfalls in the world. The town is the largest settlement in the country that has never been a provincial capital, or incorporated within one. The town was established primarily to serve the mine of Ok Tedi, which is currently mining copper and gold. Tabubil itself is situated amongst dense jungle on a plateau, beside a steep escarpment leading down to the Ok Tedi River in the Star Mountains of Papua New Guinea. The township is very remote and is only accessible via air, or river barge followed by road.

Nautilus Minerals is borrowing a page from the oil and gas industry’s playbook, and is looking to expand into deep sea mining for minerals like copper. Nautilus Minerals is hoping to become the first deep sea mining company, using technology that is similar to that used by the energy industry. CEO Mike Johnston said minerals from the seafloor are of much higher grade than they are on land. ‘The high grades make it a very competitive operation, in terms of cost, ‘ said Johnston. ‘The grade for copper is ten times what it is on average on land so it’s the grade that makes the whole thing work. It allows you to have a tight very compact footprint from an environmental point of view that’s great because we have lower CO2 emissions and we have almost no waste,’ he added. Johnston said copper would be shipped directly to China, where demand is high. Johnston said China is the largest consumer of copper in the world, accounting for about 40% of all consumption. He says he’s not worried about any potential economic slowdown in China and says the company currently has a contract with China’s largest copper producer. Nautilus’ mine is scheduled to be up and running in the first quarter of 2018. At the moment, the company is building the mining vessel in China, which will then be brought to Papua New Guinea, where the mining will take place.

BOUGAINVILLE: LONG HAN BLONG YUMI (IT'S IN OUR HANDS): Bougainville fought a brutal Civil War from 1989-1997 which claimed the lives of up to 20 000 people, and tens of thousands more were displaced. At the core of the conflict was the Panguna mine, a massive copper and gold mine that had serious socio-economic, environmental and cultural impacts. 20 years later, Bougainville is planning for a referendum for independence from Papua New Guinea. Simultaneously, there is a heated debate about re-opening the Panguna mine, based on the argument that independence requires economic self-sufficiency, and mining is the only way to achieve that. As shown by our report Voices of Bougainville, many local communities do not want to re-open the Panguna mine, and our research shows that this is not the only development option for Bougainville. Bougainville can pursue a development path that is more sustainable and broad-based, and this film explores that option. Bougainville: Long Han Blong Yumi (It's in our hands) is being published along with a report, Growing Bougainville's Future. The report explores many of the same issues as the movie, and together we hope they contribute to facilitating an informed debate on Bougainville's development options.

The race to reopen one of the world's biggest copper mines, Panguna, is dividing landowners and the wider community in Bougainville.Panguna was abandoned in 1989, after landowner dissatisfaction with the mine led to the Bougainville Crisis, an armed uprising against the Papua New Guinea Government in which 20,000 people died.Now mining companies are trying to come back, right as Bougainville prepares to vote on whether it should become an independent nation.Philip Miriori is a local leader who wants mining to resume."The Panguna mine must reopen," he said."That is going to bring prosperity.We need to see our kids go to school.We need better hospitals, better infrastructure." Mr Miriori leads a group called the Me'ekamui and has been battling through the courts and mediation to become chairman of the landowner association of the mine pit, the SMLOLA (Special Mining Lease Osikaiyang Landowners Association)."I think unity for the resource owners is important, before anything else," he said."Without the unity, I don't think we can achieve anything." Mr Miriori's Me'ekamui group has entered into a joint venture with Perth company RTG Mining, which is making a bold bid to reopen Panguna."What I was interested in with RTG is a social licence [to mine]," Mr Miriori said."I don't want to get anything for myself, I want to see my people benefit." But Mr Miriori and other supporters are being paid by RTG, an arrangement the Bougainville Government has criticised.Mr Miriori said the payments were legitimate salaries, not inducements for people's support."That is always a normal part of anything, nothing is free," he said.RTG's bid and Philip Miriori's push for leadership of the landowner association has disrupted a sustained effort by the mine's former operator, Bougainville Copper Limited, or BCL, to return to Panguna.BCL is part-owned by the Bougainville Government and had an exploration licence and first right of refusal over the site.But the Bougainville Government has now rejected BCL's application to extend that licence, and put an indefinite moratorium on any mining at Panguna.Bougainville's President, John Momis, said the issue of mining had become too sensitive."A lot of people are against mining, any mining at all, and mostly against BCL, because of its past," he said.Mr Momis said the Government does not want conflict at the mine to distract from a scheduled referendum next year on whether Bougainville should secede from Papua New Guinea.He said the Government may have been overly keen to restart the mine, because it wanted the revenue to boost its case for independence."Panguna is a very, very difficult issue for all the things that happened in the past," Mr Momis said."So maybe we were pushing things too hard because of our desire to meet our fiscal self-reliance target." Not all the landowners around the mine are happy with the stalemate, or with RTG's push to leapfrog BCL.Jeffrey Clason's mother is one of the mine landowners, and he said many

This is my childhood home, the "Watut," where Frank Brown in 1957 is here shown mining the Watut River for gold. He was an Australian, who formed a company in New Guinea called Gold and Power. He made a "race" or canal, 2.5 miles long, to build up pressure for his sluices in the Watut River. His canal ran right through my family and friend's housing area, and diverted water from Slate Creek, or what creek the locals called Watitäpinga, to the Watut River. This enabled the water to flow downhill, and also gradually the diameter of pipes was reduced, thus building up great pressure, which you can see in the video. He also had a hydro-electric generator built in to part of the lower pipes. I was born in this area in 1958. This is why my YouTube account name is "watutman." We were grateful to Frank for having built much of the infrastructure there, primitive as it was. Although his generator powered only his compound. We did not have electricity.
