Ok Tedi Mine Partners with Stakeholders to Build Star Mountain Museum

OK Tedi Mining Limited, together with Mineral Resources Star Mountain Limited (MRSM) and Landowners Royalty Trust Limited, launched the Star Mountain Museum project last month.

This project is expected to cost K6-7 million and is expected to start in January 2023.

This project is very significant for Ok Tedi given his contribution to the development of Papua New Guinea. It is only fitting that a museum be built to preserve and showcase the history of the company and that of the surrounding mining community for future generations to enjoy and be proud of.

OTML’s Managing Director and CEO, Musje Werror, said: “Once completed, this project will capture Ok Tedi’s rich history from discovery to production and feature eminent personalities including government and community leaders who were behind the company’s success.

“The museum will be in the shape of a star which is synonymous with the Star Mountains where the Ok Tedi Mine is located.”

MRSM President David Kaiankim applauded the initiative saying it is timely that landowners work in unison with OTML and other respective stakeholders to implement the project.

“When we come together, we achieve greater things instead of working in isolation and I have to congratulate everyone for that and pledge our utmost support for this project,” Mr.

Bonnie Ninai, Chairman of Kumul Minerals Ok Tedi Limited, said: “Ok Tedi is synonymous with the growth of PNG, so future generations should know the company’s journey and its colorful history that has helped build the nation. .”

Akolo Kotange, OTML Manager, Infrastructure Support Services, said he was delighted to start the project and encouraged all stakeholders to contribute where they are needed to ensure the success of this project.
