A strike at Papua New Guinea's giant Ok Tedi copper mine has ended.
Mining and milling operations at the Ok Tedi Mining Limited site Kiunga, in PNG's Western Province came to a halt when workers walked off the job over a pay dispute.
Concentrate handling and shipping also stopped in response to management's decision to implement a 100 per cent pay increase for the company's PNG engineers.
The move to stop engineers heading overseas provoked the Mining and Allied Workers Union members to call on management to increase wages for all PNG workers.
The company had described the action as illegal.
It said the mine had restarted production following a meeting between employees and managing director Alan Breen.
