JAKARTA, April 6 (Xinhua) -- Bodies of two workers of PT Freeport Indonesia were recovered on Saturday after landslides hit an underground mine three days ago in eastern Papua province, spokesman of the firm Riza Pratama said.
Two other workers survived the incident, albeit sustaining from minor wounds, the spokesman added.
"The two bodies were found today (Saturday). The operation of the company is still normal," he told Xinhua over the phone.
PT Freeport Indonesia operates the world's largest gold mine and the world's second largest copper mine in Papua province.
PT Freeport Indonesia has been a subsidiary of U.S. giant Freeport McMorant,Inc since 1973, but it has been taken over by Indonesia's state firm PT Asahan Aluminium since December 21, 2018.
The Grasberg mine of the firm produced a total of 270,000 tons of copper ore per day last year, according to the energy and mineral ministry.
