Summary:
"The Fly River, Papua New Guinea offers a rare insight into the physical and biological changes caused by mining in an otherwise pristine environment. With a catchment area still largely covered by tropical rainforest and relatively few human inhabitants, the Fly River and its tributaries, the Ok Tedi and Strickland rivers, present an opportunity to document and understand the dynamics of a large tropical river  Read more...

Abstract:

In 1984, the Ok Tedi Mining Company Limited began mining copper and gold mineralization from Mt Fubilan. In 1990, mining begin at the Porgera gold mine located at the headwaters of the Strickland  Read more...
