MINING JOBS TV Episode 3: Unskillled & Entry Level Mining Jobs Brought to you by www.miningresumes.com - Kick-start your mining career today and email us at [email protected] or call Mining Resumes on 1300 737 863 Welcome to Episode 3 of Mining Jobs TV. Hi my name is Matt and I will be speaking to you today about unskilled and entry level jobs in the Australian mining industry. Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry. You may have probably heard the stories about a friend of a friend who is earning over $100,000 a year on a mine somewhere in Western Australia or Queensland and wondered how you could get a mining job too. Entry level or unskilled jobs, like trade assistants or plant operators are hard to get now as every man and his dog are applying for them. The best way to get these jobs would be to move out to the little mining towns and live there and register with all the labour hire companies, there are hundreds of them. Trades people like fitters, welders, boilermakers and electricians still have a fairly good chance of picking up work on mining sites. If you don't have a trade, doing a rigging or scaffolding course would give you a good chance at getting a job, the courses are only about 4 weeks long, but they are fairly expensive. Other unskilled or basic jobs available include cleaners, laundry workers and kitchen hands which is not difficult if you have hospitality training and experience. Talking to people who are currently working on mining sites can be a big help, especially if you have no previous experience or qualifications. It would be even better if you could get in contact with expats from your own country who are working on mining sites. They can let you know who to call and what you need to do. If you are inexperienced and unqualified you need to be fit and ready for physical labour. The work will be very repetitive and routine based with long 12 hour days, so you really need to be mentally prepared, as well as physically. Some mines will have a very high turnover of workers. This is because many people go to work on the mines not knowing what to expect. Because there can be such a high turnover, you may not start earning big money straight away, although your wages won't be small either. Once you've proved yourself to be a reliable worker, your wages should increase. Most mining companies will run police checks, as well as drug and alcohol tests. Even though there are wet mess areas on-site where workers can unwind and drink alcohol, they do have to drink in moderation and be fit-for-work before their shift starts Shutdowns are exactly what the name suggests. Every now and then mining sites need to shut down for upgrades, maintenance or repairs and they usually hire people temporarily to work during shut downs. A lot of the work is unskilled and doesn't last very long, so it's great for backpackers who want to keep on travelling and don't want to make a full-time commitment. It's also a great way to get your foot in the door and gain valuable on-site experience. To do certain mining jobs you will need to get licences and training, or 'tickets' as they are more commonly known. There are lots of different types of tickets depending on what type of work you're going to do. Some tickets can be very expensive and mines in different states require different tickets, so you really need to do your research before you start spending money on courses. Don't think that just because you're female that the mining companies and recruiters won't consider you. The mining industry in Australia is becoming increasingly gender neutral. It's not just cooking and cleaning jobs either on offer for women either; more and more women are working on Australian mining sites, and in some cases, companies even prefer women for certain jobs. For example, a popular job for women on mining sites is driving a dump truck because research has shown that women are easier on the multi-million dollar equipment yet still get the job done. It's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors. We highly recommended Mining Resumes to prepare your resume as they are the industry leaders in resume preparation for clients seeking jobs in the mining and oil & gas industry. They can be contacted via phone on 1300 RESUME or have a look at their website miningresumes.com with package details and samples browse that demonstrate their quality and experience.

Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

Thank you for watching. Have a nice day! Don't Forget To Subcribe My Channel: https://goo.gl/vCXdrM ABOUT: More than 1,000 jobs with six figure salaries have been made available in one outback Australian town.Entry level positions where no qualifications are necessary are up for grabs in the gold-mining town of Kalgoorlie.The only catch is that many of the jobs are not for fly in, fly out workers - only those who are prepared to live in the small Western Australian town.Many of the jobs are for skilled and unskilled mine workers - but there are others advertised to support the mining industry such as in hotels and restaurants.The highest salaries in all of Australia are in the Kalgoorlie gold fields.According to job search site Seek, the average wage last year was $99,236.Jessica Biddle of the Kalgoorlieboulder Chambers of Commerce said that most businesses will train on the job, and even the inexperienced workers will be paid generously.'Even entry level jobs you can actually earn a very good wage.Average $100,000 a year.' 'We need people to come back to Kalgoorlie.We've had a lot of people leave, and now we need people to come back and reside in Kalgoorlie, so they can benefit from the lifestyle from living here,' said Ms Biddle.Australia's best paid workers are those in the mining industry, making on average $139,303 per year, compared to the average Australian income of $78,832.Despite the town being renowned for its social problems, Ms Biddle insists that it's a great place to live.'There're over 250 community and sporting groups registered in Kalgoorlie, there is something literally for everyone in Kalgoorlie.

Thank you for watching. Have a nice day! My channel: https://goo.gl/vCXdrM ABOUT: The average Australian full-time worker earns $82,435 a year but there's one city where salaries are substantially higher, official figures show.Average weekly earnings, before tax and bonuses, stand at $1,585.30, following an annual wage increase of 2.7per cent.For an average full-time worker, that equates to $82,435.60 a year.Men earn 17 per cent more a year than women, with average full-time salaries of $87,209.20 compared with $74,562.80 for female workers who are often in lower-paid industries.If that is not enough, workers wanting to earn 14 per cent more, or an average full-time salary of $94,224, should move to Canberra - the national capital and home to most Federal Government departments.The Australian Bureau of Statistics's wage data for May, released today, showed the Australian Capital Territory offers average weekly earnings of $1,812, making it the nation's richest state or territory.In terms of professions, mining engineers make the most per week, with pay packets of $2,592.00, or $134,784 a year.After mining, media and telecommunication offered the next highest average salaries of $100,396 followed by finance and insurance services on $98,532.For almost everyone else, the Australian Bureau of Statistics's chief economist Bruce Hockman said wages growth was still stagnant.'We're still seeing low average earnings growth,' he said.When it came to the battlers, the accommodation and food services sector offered the lowest full-time salaries of $59,103, followed by retail trade on $60,388.Average salaries rose by one per cent in the six months to May 2018, translating into an annual increase of 2.7per cent.Public servants enjoyed higher annual wage increases of 3.2per cent, compared with the private sector average of 2.7per cent.While the overall increases were small, they were still an improvement on the six months to May 2017, when wages rose by a minuscule 0.6per cent.Tasmanians had the lowest average salaries of $1,379.20 a week, or $71,718.40 a year.Australia's unemployment rate fell marginally from 5.4per cent to a five-and-a-half year low of 5.3per cent in July even though 3,900 jobs were lost.Mining-rich Western Australia had the nation's second highest salaries of $90,496 a year.The Northern Territory, which is home to natural gas projects, was third with average salaries of $86,762 a year.New South Wales, which includes Australia's financial powerhouse Sydney, was the only other state or territory to offer above-average salaries of $83,517 a year.

You need passion and commitment if you want to work in a mine as Craig Glenie finds out when he checks out the life of a miner at one of New Zealand's seven mines. The Huntly East Mine is in the business of coal to the tune of around 40,000 tonnes a month. The physical and environmental challenges of extracting coal can be significant but as Craig discovers, mining is a stable industry offering numerous career opportunities.

The top 1% controls the lowest share of wealth in these ten countries. Data source (especially charts 6-5 and 3-6): http://bit.ly/2fGkpa1 Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation Music: Midnight Memories (TDC Remix) by Glimpse https://soundcloud.com/glimpse_official Video concept, written, narrated and produced by Bryce Plank Video co-designed, edited, and scored by Robin West Script: Our last video broke down where the 1% controls the most wealth, now let’s look at the 10 countries that are best at preventing too much wealth from accumulating at the top. Tenth is Switzerland, with the highest median wealth in the world. Investors love parking their money there because the Swiss political and economic system is on lock. This constant injection of foreign capital helped the country survive the global recession that battered the rest of the world. France is ninth. Government spending accounts for half of the economy and it owns shares in many companies like banks, energy utilities, transportation providers, telecommunications firms. This gives the French people more control over working conditions and wages so they aren’t exploited as much as workers in other countries. The Netherlands is the eighth most equal country. 56% of its wealth is owned by the top 10%. That seems like a lot, but it’s actually one of the lowest rates in the world. The government uses aggressive taxation to fight the worldwide trend of more and more earnings going to the rich. Seventh is Greece. The economic crisis that has ravaged the country over the past decade has driven poverty over 30%. The Greek’s problem isn’t keeping wealth out of the hands of the rich, it’s that there isn’t enough wealth, period. Number 6 is the UK, where there are over 2 million millionaires, that’s more than 3% of the population. Over the last century, taxation has cut the one percent’s share of total wealth in half. But it’s on the rise again as earnings are increasingly captured by the top. Fifth is Australia. Only Switzerland and Iceland have median wealth higher than Australia. Mining is one of its strongest economic sectors. The physical demands of that industry could be why Australians focus on fairly compensating their workers. Another wealthy country is New Zealand, the fourth-best nation at preventing its one percenters from plundering all the booty. Like the Aussies, Kiwis are big agricultural exporters. Even though there are a lot of farmers, they’re also a relatively well educated people who wouldn’t tolerate being taken advantage of by elites. Third is Japan. It has the second most millionaires in the world and its capital is the world’s largest city. This combination of development and density has driven the Japanese to embrace a balanced approach to society building through policies that reward success while preventing gratuitous wealth accumulation. The second-most equal country in the world is Belgium. 97% of its 11.25 million people live in cities, which fosters a “we’re all in this together” mindset. Belgium’s capital, Brussels, is also the seat of government for the European Union—the organization that’s been—arguably—the most effective at tackling income inequality in the history of the world. On that note, the country whose 1% controls the least wealth is Hungary. It didn’t create a single billionaire until 2016. It joined the European Union in 2004 and has a universal health care system and provides tuition-free university education to its people. There’s something special about this part of the world as Hungary’s neighbors—Slovenia and Slovakia—also rank near the top of various other rankings of equality. So I want to know why do you think that is? I’m also curious to know where your country came in on this list, or did it make the other list—like mine—of the places where the top 1% controls too much wealth. Thanks for watching, until next time, for TDC, I’m Bryce Plank.

FULL SPEECH As an Australian nationalist, I make no apologies for being strong on jobs for Australians first, and that definitely includes apprenticeships. Labor and the coalition on the other hand have quite literally opened the floodgates to foreign workers on visa schemes that have sold out the unemployed and the under-unemployed right across this country. Labor sold out workers in this country by establishing a little-known category called the 400 visa. It was a category that had very little oversight and that gave approval to foreign workers, in as little as 24 hours, to come and take Australian jobs. Hundreds of thousands of workers were employed under the 400 visa category, costing long-term unemployed Australians and university graduates finishing their studies a chance of employment. We had the 457 visa program, where, again under Labor, the floodgates were opened to foreigners to come and take hundreds of thousands of Australian jobs. When Labor lost government in 2013, they were letting 130,000 foreign workers into Australia to take jobs like ship's engineers, ship's officers, radio journalists, magistrates, park rangers, zookeepers, and flight attendants. They are just some of the jobs Labor allowed to go to foreigners. Thankfully, the number of foreign workers on the 457 visa program dropped by 60,000 last year. One Nation was largely responsible for cuts to over 200 of those job categories, some of which I mentioned before. I also note that ACTU Secretary Sally McManus said in July this year that there are 1.4 million visa holders with working rights in Australia. That's disgusting. I have no doubt that these people are hard workers, but the point of my disgust comes down to Australians wanting a job. They have to compete with over one million overseas workers. Both Labor and the coalition have hoodwinked voters in this country. They talk tough on jobs, but they are quietly undermining the unemployed and the future youth, who will one day join the search for a job in Australia. I want to bring to the Senate's attention another real problem that both Labor and the coalition have failed to recognise. The Minister for Jobs and Industrial Relations, Kelly O'Dwyer, last year admitted in a Financial Review interview that 400,000 ABNs were issued to people on visas who are not allowed to work in this country. Australians find that to be so typical of government departments—they don't talk to each other. So, on top of the 1.4 million work visas issued to foreigners, we have a further 400,000 taking jobs from Aussies under the guise of small-business ownership. I note this matter of public importance also highlights the need to protect local manufacturers and Australian grade steel. It's a bit bloody tough to protect Australian grade steel when the Greens, supported by Labor, are constantly trying to shut down mining in this country. You see, Australian-grade steel requires Australian coal, particularly the high-quality coal from my home state of Queensland, along with the high-grade iron ore from my One Nation colleague's home state of Western Australia. When I stayed in camp with 800 miners in Moranbah only a few weeks ago, I learned that the majority of Central Queensland coal mines are producing coking coal, which is one of two key ingredients for Australian-grade steel. Australian coking coal is mixed with Western Australian iron ore to form the best steel in the world. That's why we're exporting these two commodities to countries like China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. They want their bridges and buildings to stand the test of time. But, if the Greens and Labor team up again at the next election with their mutual preference deals, we'll be thrust back to building straw-and-mud homes. The key to using Australian-grade steel and protecting local manufacturers is to stop demonising coal and other mining throughout this country. As for Senator Cameron's approach to my policy on getting apprenticeships in this country, I've done more for the youth of this nation in apprenticeship schemes than Labor have ever done. If it means that rural and regional areas get the chance for their youth to get into apprenticeship schemes then so be it.

The Australian minerals industry's latest ad in its Making the Future Possible campaign, promoting the industry’s use of innovation including drone technology. Australia’s world-class mining workforce is the result of industry innovation, attraction of talented employees and investment in employee skills and training. Innovation is central to maintaining Australia’s comparative advantage in mining and helps drive high-value, high-wage jobs in a range of scientific and highly-skilled professional occupations. Drones are important to the minerals sector’s environmental, cultural heritage, safety and productivity performance including: • monitoring turtle nesting sites • improving road safety by monitoring traffic, road conditions and hazards and inspecting overhead cranes, towers and roofs of tall buildings to avoid working at height • making it faster to gather more information about mine sites, saving millions of dollars when compared with using planes for survey work • mapping and digitally recording areas of Indigenous cultural heritage.

Labor Spokesperson for Local Jobs Peter Tinley talks about the need to make sure Western Australians get jobs from Western Australian resource projects. Every Western Australian should get the benefits of the boom: - Youth unemployment in Western Australia is as high as 18.3 per cent. - 3,500 apprentices lost from 2008 to July 2010. - During the last boom we had thousands of engineers working in the oil and gas sector in WA. - In 2011 engineers are forced overseas to work on WA projects. Labor has a plan to keep jobs in WA by: - ensuring a fair share of engineering, manufacturing and fabrication jobs for WA; - ensuring deals done with the government will be available for all to see; - allowing local businesses to compete on a level playing field; and - ensuring the benefits of the mining boom flow into local workshops.

Wide shot protesting mine worker symbolically digging tarmac on road with his shovel close to AngloGold Ashanti offices STORYLINE Gold miners in Orkney, in the North West province of South Africa, staged a large rally on Wednesday over poor wages and living conditions, union officials said. Thousands of singing, placard-waving workers marched to the headquarters in Orkney of the AngloGold Ashanti mining company, where production has been at a standstill since 26 September when all its miners joined a strike which began on September 20 at its Kopanang mine. The miners, many carrying signs recalling the recent Marikana mine strike, listened to rousing speeches by union officials who asked them not to give up on their demand for a monthly wage of 16-thousand rand (1,898 US dollars). "We demand a living wage - sixteen thousand upwards," said miner Bramage Sekete. Ntseki Mqabe, who also works in the mine, said their salary of four thousand rand (474 US dollars) per month was "a joke. It's peanuts." The strike at AngloGold Ashanti is one of a wave of mining strikes across the country, which began in August at Lonmin's Marikana mines. There police shot dead 34 striking workers on August 16, a level of state violence not seen since the end of apartheid in 1994. A retired judge is currently leading an official inquest into the Marikana incident and related violence that killed at least 44 people. The commission of inquiry will determine the roles played by the police, Lonmin and two mining unions, and whether any of those under investigation could have done something to prevent the violence. In September the Marikana strikers returned to work after accepting a pay increase of up to 22 percent through negotiations that also involved church leaders as mediators. But two of South Africa's most powerful unions said in a joint statement on Tuesday that the Marikana settlement set a bad precedent for labour relations in South Africa. Even as South Africa grapples with the Marikana incident, there appears to be no end in sight to the ongoing labour unrest. Workers have also been on strike for weeks at Anglo American Platinum, the world's largest platinum producer. Similar strikes are ongoing at Gold Fields and Samancor Chrome Western Mine.

The TauTona Mine or Western Deep No.3 Shaft, is a gold mine in South Africa. At approximately 3.9 kilometers (2.4 mi) deep, it is home to the world's deepest mining operations, rivalled only by Mponeng gold mine. The mine is one of the three Western Deep Levels mines of the West Wits gold field west of Johannesburg. The mine is near the town of Carletonville. TauTona neighbours the Mponeng and Savuka mines, and TauTona and Savuka share processing facilities. All three are owned by AngloGold Ashanti. The mine was built by the Anglo American Corporation and its 2 km (1.2 mi) deep main shaft was sunk in 1957. The name TauTona means "great lion" in the Setswana language. The mine began operation in 1962. It is one of the most efficient mines in South Africa and remains in continuous operation even during periods when the price of gold is low. Since its construction, two secondary shafts have been added bringing the mine to its current depth. The mine has some 800 km (500 mi) of tunnels and employs around 5,600 miners. The mine is a dangerous place to work, with an average of five miners dying in accidents each year. The mine is so deep that temperatures in the mine can rise to life-threatening levels. Air-conditioning equipment is used to cool the mine from 55 °C (131 °F) down to a more tolerable 28 °C (82 °F). The rock face temperature reaches 60 °C (140 °F). By 2008, the mine reached 3.9 km (2.4 mi) underground. This made it the deepest mine in the world, surpassing the 3.5 km (2.2 mi) deep East Rand Mine by a considerable margin. This new shaft extended the depth from its previous 3.5 km (2.2 mi), and will extend the mine's life to 2015. The lift cage that transports the workers from the surface to the bottom travels at 16 metres per second (36 mph / 58 km/h) so together with traveling on horizontal trolleys the journey to the rock face can take up to 1 hour from the surface level. The mine has been featured on the MegaStructures television program produced by the National Geographic Channel. In the 2008 financial year, there were seven fatal accidents at AngloGold Ashanti's West Wits operations in which 14 miners died, four of those at the TauTona mine. One fatality was recorded the next year.

Trevali Mining Corporation (TSX:TV) is a primary zinc producer with four commercially operating mines across the American and African continents; the Santander Mine in Peru, the Caribou Mine in New Brunswick, Canada, its 80 percent owned Rosh Pinah mine in Namibia and its 90 percent owned Perkoa mine in Burkina Faso. Trevali is also looking to develop two more properties in New Brunswick, near the Caribou Mine. In the interview below, Trevali President and CEO Mark Cruise discussed the rationale and benefits behind purchasing its two African properties from Glencore (LSE:GLEN), a major partner and shareholder of the company. As part of an initiative to grow Trevali’s standing as the sixth zinc producer globally, the company has seamlessly integrated these properties into their production program. Cruise also offered his views on the zinc market, suggesting that zinc prices look like they will be ‘stronger for longer’ as he does not see any material zinc mines entering the market in the next three to five years.

The Pilbara strike of 1946-49 is one of the most dramatic moments in Australia’s indigenous history. Aboriginal people not only defied the owners of pastoral stations in North-West Western Australia by demanding better wages and conditions, but also sought to win independence from their colonial masters. In its aftermath, they acquired considerable freedom and autonomy through co-operative mining and other ventures. The story of this struggle inspired the campaign for Aboriginal rights throughout Australia.

The National Union of Mineworkers says over 30 thousand jobs have been lost in the mining sector over the last two years - with more job losses looming. The Union has accused the mining companies of speeding up firings and retrenchments to weaken unions prior to this year's wage negotiations in the mining sector. It says it's members continue to report planned retrenchments at operations countrywide. And that mining houses are blaming high labour costs, recurring strikes and weak commodity prices.

Music & Video by AK Rockefeller / Download this track: http://akrockefeller.com/music/merdeka/ Indigenous freedom fighters, isolated & outnumbered and with almost no weapons, wage a resistance struggle against a massive army and brutal police forces with US training & funding. The U.N. sold out West Papua in 1961 under the New York Agreement. Indonesia took control under U.S. pressure. Since then, as many as half a million Papuans have paid with their lives. Who is behind this evil insanity? U.S. mining company, Freeport-McMoran Gold & Copper, owns the world's largest gold mine, Grasberg, in West Papua. These greedy companies - Freeport-McMoran, BP, Rio Tinto, Noble Group, and many others, pay the Indonesian military & police to terrorize innocent civilians, to rape, torture and beat them, force them off their land, and kill them. Benny Wenda, Papuan leader in exile: "In West Papua, there is no freedom, only killing, intimidation, torture." Learn more about West Papua: http://westpapuamedia.info/ http://freewestpapua.org/

Irian Jaya (1995): With its brooding jungles, snow-capped mountains, and ancient tribal cultures, Irian Jaya is one of the world's last frontiers. It is home to the Dani people, unknown to the outside world till the 1930s, but policies encouraged by the Indonesian Government have put all under threat. For downloads and more information visit http://journeyman.tv/9754/short-films/irian-jaya.html A new highway is snaking its way across tribal homelands and logging and mining companies have already staked their claim to vast green swathes on either side of it. The mountains harbour the largest single deposit of gold and copper in the World - a bonanza for the Indonesian Government and its American-owned mining partner, Freeport. Locals are being forcibly resettled and to make matters worse the Indonesian Government is bringing in people from the overcrowded island of Java. The indigenous people and their unique culture are being overwhelmed by these new migrants. All this is giving impetus to their rebel movement, the Organisasi Papua Merdeka.
