Newmont Indonesia's production normal despite mining hold

Newmont Mining Corp's Indonesian unit, PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara, continues to produce copper and gold through processing stockpiles while mining operations are suspended at its Batu Hijau site, Kasan Mulyono, PTNNT's public relations manager, told Dow Jones Newswires.

He said mining operations at Batu Hijau will resume once an investigation by the company and government officials into a fatal accident over the weekend is concluded, but the company is unsure when that will happen.
