Flash floods hit Freeport Indonesia's mining operationsFlash floods have left one worker missing and caused extensive damage to a power plant at U.S.-owned miner Freeport Indonesia’s operations in the eastern-most province of Papua, company officials said on Wednesday. Mining operations were continuing as normal, but power and water outages were expected in the coming days, the Indonesian unit of U.S. mining giant Freeport McMoran Inc. said in a statement. “One person remains unaccounted for after flash floods that occurred late Tuesday destroyed roads, bridges, water lines and most of the plant that supplies power to Tembagapura and Hidden Valley,” the company said, warning employees to keep travel to a minimum.
