Ok Tedi Mining Limited is owned by the State of Papua New Guinea (PNG) and has been operating an open-pit copper, gold and silver mine located in the Star Mountains of the Western Province, PNG for over 35 years. 

OTML’s registered office and senior management team are located in Tabubil. Support operations are based in Tabubil, Kiunga and Bige, the sites for pyrite concentrate storage and the sediment recovery facility. OTML also has a representative office in Port Moresby, PNG and a marketing and logistics office in Brisbane, Australia. The Company holds a tenement portfolio of several Exploration Leases (ELs), other Leases for Mining Purposes (LMPs) and leases under the PNG Land Act. 

OTML has made a significant contribution to development in the Western Province through direct and indirect employment, royalties, compensation payments, business opportunities and training. Benefits from the mine are directed as dividend streams to Western Province communities, specifically the Mine Villages, Community Mine Continuation Agreement (CMCA) communities, the Fly River Provincial Government (FRPG) and the Independent State of PNG. 

The Company has continued to be responsible for environmental and social impacts including sediment aggradation in the Ok Tedi and Fly River systems, through monitoring and reporting to the communities and the State. OTML’s future is dependent upon consent from the CMCA communities as well as the Provincial and National Governments. Success is measured by safety performance, financial performance, social development programs and the management and mitigation of environmental impacts.
