Operations at the world’s No.2 copper mine in Indonesia are “running as normal”, a spokesman for the local unit of Freeport-McMoRan Inc said, despite thousands of workers extending a strike for another month.

Riza Pratama said in a text message on Thursday that “around 25 000 workers and contractors” continued to work at the Grasberg mine, a key supplier to buyers including top metals consumer China.
