Another mining accident occurred at the gold and copper mine belonging to mining giant PT Freeport Indonesia (PTFI) in Tembagapura, Mimika, Papua, on Wednesday.
The accident, that took place in the Biggossan area at 00.20 a.m, left Hendry Munardi, 50, dead and two other employees in critical condition.
“The victim allegedly died because of inhaling poisonous gas. The other two workers, Nofi Rizal Fachrudin and Sri Giri Dino Haryanto, are in a stable condition,” Mimika Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Victor D Mackbon told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
"But we have to wait for further investigation to find out the exact cause [of the accident],” he said.
The police have questioned several witnesses. Victor said there were only three workers on duty at the time of the incident.
Hendry’s body was flown to his hometown in Batam, Riau Islands, while Nofi and Sri have been receiving treatment at Tembagapura Hospital.
The area where the incident occurred was temporarily closed to allow police investigators to examine the site. “Other areas in the mine are operating as usual,” he said.
PTFI spokesperson Riza Pratama did not respond to the Post's request for comment on the accident.

He said the protests of Tolikara people in Kemendagri last week which led to rioting, was not something to be imitated. The Tolikara community should not be affected by any issue from any parties.
According to him, different political views are reasonable, but that does not necessarily mean society should be split because of that. It is time for the community to cooperate in supporting all development programs in the region.
“Even so, I hope the security forces are alert to anticipate the various possibilities that will occur in Tolikara, the three candidates who joined Tolikara’s election should calm their supporters,” he said.
After the riot in the Ministry of Home Affairs, as many as 11 people from Papua were arrested and now reside in Metro Jaya Police Station.
