After having to celebrate its last two anniversaries virtually during the height of the pandemic, PTFI recently was able to commemorate its 55th year with a large gathering of employees and community members.

Clockwise from top left, a live music performance by Indonesian singer Sandhy Sondoro and featuring Tony Wenas, President Director-PTFI, kicked off the celebration at the Grasberg Block Cave underground mine. The party was followed by an event at Tembagapura Sports Hall that featured guest stars, such as singers Iyan Yoshua, top right, and Sonya Bara, bottom right.
