[Timika presentations]
Grasberg and Ertsberg presentations in Timika.   Following completion of the Batu Hijau visit on the afternoon of Tuesday 19 October, the group travelled back to Lombok and Bali and then overnight to Timika in West Papua, Indonesia.   Following a couple of hours to freshen-up, the program commenced after an early lunch.   For well founded security reasons, the group was not able to travel to the mine site.   Instead we were given a series of comprehensive presentations and data inspection sessions at the PT Freeport Indonesia base in Timika.   These presentations covered each of the major deposits and ore-types in the Grasberg-Ertsberg complex, punctuated by sessions in the core layout area where a number of representative drill holes were laid out for inspection for the deposit covered by the previous presentation.   The program was managed and mainly delivered by Clyde Leys, Manager Exploration & Timika Geology Support, pictured above.
