Newmont Reaches Tentative Deal to Resume Indonesian Exports

Reuters reported today that Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM) has reached a tentative agreement that could see it resume exports of copper concentrate as early as next week. The deal will still need to be approved by several government officials, according to Reuters.

Discussions with Sukhyar, the director-general of coal and minerals at Indonesia’s mining ministry, on the key issues being renegotiated have concluded, said Newmont’s Indonesian Chief Executive Martiono Hadianto. “We have reached a deal,” he said.
