Freeport McMoran has entered into a heads of agreement with the Indonesian Government to reduce its stake in the Grasberg copper mine from around 91 per cent to just under 50 per cent. Control over its divested stake will be assumed by the state-owned PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium Persero. Rio Tinto does not have a direct stake in Grasberg, but it owns the rights to a certain amount of the mine’s production, and it could potentially benefit from the change of ownership to the tune of more than $US3bn ($4.1bn).
