Jul 28 14
On July 25, 2014, PT Freeport Indonesia entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Directorate General of Mineral and Coal and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources under which the Government of Indonesia and PT-FI have agreed to negotiate an amended Contract of Work (COW), to be completed over the next six months, to address provisions related to the size of PT-FI's concession area, royalties and taxes, domestic processing and refining, divestment, local content, and continuation of operations post-2021. Execution of the MOU will enable the resumption of concentrate exports, which are expected to commence in August 2014. Effective with the signing of the MOU, PT-FI has agreed to pay export duties set in a new regulation issued by the Government of Indonesia on July 25, 2014, to provide a $115 million assurance bond to support its commitment for smelter development and to increase royalties to 4.0% for copper and 3.75% for gold from the current rates of 3.5% for copper and 1.0% for gold.
PT Freeport Indonesia Reports Production Results for the First Quarter Ended March 2014
Apr 26 14
PT Freeport Indonesia reported production results for the first quarter ended March 2014. For the quarter, the company reported that its copper production fell 36% to 140 million pounds compared to 219 million pounds in the same period last year. Gold production also fell but more slightly to 208,000 ounces of the year from 212,000 ounces year-on-year. Low production has squeezed its sales, as it only sold 109 million pounds of copper and 162,000 ounces of gold during the first quarter of the year, down by almost 45% and 15%, respectively, from the same period a year earlier. The company attributed the lower sales to lower milling rates as a result of the restrictions on concentrate exports from Indonesia, which resulted in the deferral of approximately 125 million pounds of copper and 140,000 ounces of gold in the first quarter of 2014.
