July 23 Newmont Mining Corp is
negotiating an agreement with Indonesia that would enable the
U.S. company to resume exports of copper concentrates, a
spokesman said on Wednesday.
Earlier on Wednesday, Freeport-McMoRan Inc said it
expected to "imminently" sign a memorandum of understanding
allowing it to resume exports, which have been halted since
"We hope to reach an agreement with the government of
Indonesia on an MoU or memorandum of understanding, which we
would expect would lead to issuance of an export permit,"
Newmont spokesman Omar Jabara said.
