Deaths at Indonesian mine
The Indonesian government has ordered a halt in operations at a US-owned mine following a tunnel collapse that left 28 workers dead.
The collapse happened on May 14, when a tunnel caved in at Freeport-McMoRan's gold and copper Grasberg mine in Papua province, Indonesia.
Channel News Asia has reported that the company shut down all activities at the mine for two weeks following the accident, but on Tuesday operations resumed before the government stepped in.
The company re-opened the mine despite another worker dying on Saturday when a truck underground was engulfed in a tide of muddy ore materials pouring from a container.
The stoppage could now last two months as inspectors move in to assess safety at the mining complex.
